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.

An example is Goldilocks and the THree Bears. 1991 Plate No. 15109B

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

Never out of the box HAve certificate

Hello,

The collectible plate market is currently rather slumped. These plates, even with original boxes and certificates sell for an average of $5 - $7 each on today's market.

Though it may sound cliche, the best platform for you to sell these is on Ebay. It is where the most potential buyers would first go to search for such items. You can also try listing on Craigslist, through a for sale forum group on Facebook or a local consignment shop. I do not recommend selling direct to a dealer, as a dealer will offer 10% - 30% of the lowest perceived value.

Please take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars. If you require further assistance, no worries, the question thread does not close even after leaving a rating.
