I have a bunch of bone china tea cups from my deceased mom.

Customer Question
I have a bunch...

I have a bunch of bone china tea cups from my deceased mom. They are from the 1950's. Are they worth anything to anyone?

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.

The only thing I know about them is that my mom collected them. And I want to get rid of them. I do mosaics and considered breaking them for that but if they are of value I don't want to do it.

Hello

Are these just the Tea Cups or are the cups and saucer sets? Do you know some of the makers and patterns?
