Customer Question
I bought a set...

I bought a set of

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I bought a set of Rosenthal china in 1969 in Germany when we were stationed there in the Army. I can't find the pattern on line. It is the Romanse china design, but the pattern was drawn in three shades of 14k gold. It's a delicate collection of circles and leaves with a single gold line about an inch inside the rim. How can I find information about this? I have a set of 12 place settings and serving pieces in unused condition. I paid $400 in 1969, and it was being sold for $1,200 in the US. It's my Mothers set, and I would love to sell it.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Some of the pieces are in original boxes marked Romanze Form 11250 Obere 4 nd 20 1007 Kontrollnumber 5

I have a large set of Rosenthal antique china from either
I have a large set of Rosenthal antique china from either the late 19th or the early 20th century. There are 73 pieces that a relative purchased in Germany in 1946. All pieces of the china are marked with the Rosenthal crown, crossed swords, and R/G over "SANSSOUCI." The pieces are bone china with delicate hand-painted flowers and hand-pained gold accents and gold rim. I realize that there are a number of versions of the "SANSSOUCI" pattern, but this set seems to be a very early version. I am interested in selling it and wonder what is the best way to do this. I live in Wisconsin--within 1 hour of Madison, 45 minutes from Milwaukee, and 2 hours of Chicago. … read more
