Customer Question
Hello, I have a...

Hello, I have a 12 place setting California Pottery dinnerware with etched glass crystal and flatware all of the same matching palm tree pattern. My parents purchased this on their honeymoon and bought through the JL Hudson Company in Detroit. Who would be able to help me in identifying the value or if a museum would be interested. It is a delightful example of post modern design. Thank you.

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?

It's an amazing complete set with all the serving and misc. pieces.
