Hello,

Thank you for your patience.

A fair asking price for your large early 20th century porcelain fine china for dining set with gold rims that was produced in Limoges, France for Gump's of San Francisco is $4000 - $5000.

Although the gold is real, there is no longer a precious metal meltdown value as the cost to extract the gold would exceed the value of the amount extracted.

As for selling, though it may sound cliche, the best platform for you to sell the set is on Ebay. It is where the most potential buyers would first go to search for such items. You can also try listing on Craigslist, through a 'for sale' forum group on Facebook, an auction house in a nearest city center or a local consignment shop. I do not recommend selling direct to a dealer, as a dealer will offer 10% - 30% of the lowest perceived value.

Please take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars. If you require further assistance, no worries, the question thread does not close even after leaving a rating.
