Customer Question
I was recently robbed...

I was recently robbed. I lost a complete coffee/tea service, silver plate from the Meriden B Company marked 1918. one coffee, one tea, sugar, cream and one other piece with lid. I also lost some Tiffany pieces but the Meriden had family history which I loved. This was the greatest loss.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Do you know where i can go for replacement pieces or perhaps value? Mary Hewitt Pratt

You had a set of late 1800's Meriden Britannia silver plate in pattern number 1918 with a value of $200.

You can go to Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com, Ebay and letgo.com (local) and use the search term "Meriden Britannia pattern 1918" to try and find your set. For example, this one (click on the word this in blue) sold last year, so there are pieces out there.

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and use their search bar for the set.

Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.
