Customer Question
I have a set...

I have a set of Mikasa Grand Ivory tropez china L5504. I have 12 dinner plates, 12 saucers, 7 cups, 12 soup bowls, 11 salad plates, 1 large cutting plate, a large vegetable bowl, an ivory sugar bowl with lid and creamer

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 the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

I also have a book by Jane Austin "EMMA" very old, I have it preserved in a bag due to the aging of it

Hi,

The china for fine dining market has declined and moreso since the Recession. Antique and vintage sets sell for significantly less than they did a few decades ago. On today's market, your Mikasa Grand Ivory Tropez china set could sell for up to $300 - $400.

The value of your volume of Emma will depend on the year printed and publisher, please send the year and publisher information and I will provide the book value for you.

In the meantime, if you could please take a moment to leave a rating for my services here by clicking the stars, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you!
