Customer Question
Hi Pearl, my mother-in...

Hi Pearl, my mother-in law just passed away and has left us a Shelley tea set which is burnished orange and black. The saucers are squarish, and the number on the back is 11110/C with another squiggle under the c. Any ideas on it's value, and where could I sell it? We now have 9 tea sets, so trying to get that number down to about 3.Kerrie

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?

It comes with a large plate and 6 tea/coffee cups, saucers and side plates.

I'm having trouble getting photos, but could identify it if you could advise of a website to check, or if you send a link?
Thank you,

Hi Kerrie. I'm sorry to hear about your mother-in-law.

.

Honestly, Shelley produced thousands of patterns. It could takes hours to find it and then that's no guarantee. I ran the number and it didn't turn up a match, which is why I asked for photos. Odds are it never had an official name, but with photos I could compare it known patterns.

.

Do you think you could try emailing them? You could send them to *****@******.*** Tell them that you're trying to get pictures to DianaF in antiques.

ok, I'll keep trying. Also, I have just realised that each cup and plate has a different number, so I'll get a list together.

Thanks for trying. I appreciate it. .

.
That could explain why the number didn't turn up. I hate when companies used odd numbers on their pieces. They probably never though they're be a need to look up their patterns.
