Hi! My name is ***** ***** I would be glad to help with your blue willow service.

The value depends a lot on the age of the set and the maker. Could you very kindly attach a photo of it and one of the mark on the bottom.

Also, just to confirm the inventory:

6 cups & saucers (one cup damaged)

6 bread & butter plates

6 dinner plates

creamer & sugar

salt & pepper

2 oval platters (sizes?)

1 vegetable server

3 cereal bowls.

Many thanks,

PS. To attach photos: click on the paperclip icon and it will automatically pull up your picture files (on your computer) for you to select a photo to attach.

If you don't have a photo in your computer, simply email yourself one from a smart phone and save it in your picture files. Here's picture-attaching help if you need it:
