Customer Question
Hi, I have inherited...

Hi, I have inherited a silver plated fluted tea pot, sugar bowl and milk jug. On the teapot is "De Beers CM Ltd Sports 1897. Presented by Hazell Ballan & Co. Kimberley"

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.

Re the above tea set, I have been quoted $1000 to repair the plating. Is it worth it? Ivan

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

Not at the moment

Please also send a photo of the bottom. This companies marks were very specific

and I need to see them in order to determine the date which helps determine value.

This is a circa 1897 Walker and Hall of Sheffield, England

silver plated ridged teapot , sugar and creamer in shape 0692, used as a presentation set.

The value of the set is $250, so replating would be very cost prohibitive.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com,
Ebay and letgo.com (local).

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

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.
