Customer Question
I need to insure...

I need to insure some very old peaces. Can you help me with the best way to do that?

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.

One tea set is pre noritake from 1880's, the others sets from early 1900's. Some i have no idea...NBS marking. An art deco Shelley jug.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

All 8 individual cup and saucer sets have a matching cake plate. None are damaged. The main one to insure is the 1880 set as that is the one i think is valuable
