Customer Question
I have a full...

I have a full set of China from the late 1940's. It is marked "Mieto", "Made in Occupied Japan". I am told this is a collectible item, but have no idea of vallue. Can you point me in the right direction?

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

It is a full 12 setting set with platters and serving bowls. I believe it is in good condition although it belonged t my parents and was used for family gatherings.
