Customer Question
I have some German...

I have some German silver that needs appraising, and then selling; it consists of a tea/coffee set/tray, sugar, creamer, PLUS some flatwear. Can you help?

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.

I inherited it from my parents, who brought it from Germany in 1938. Some is engraved with my grandfather's initial. That's really all I know. I did take pictures that are on my phone.

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

NO, but I'm hoping to sell it and give the money to my grandchildren for college!

I received one picture of the 5 piece tea set that includes the tray.

Are there any marks or numbers on the set like 800, 830, 850, 900, 925?
