Customer Question
We have a set...

We have a set (12 place) of pre - WWII Japanese china. The mark on the back of the pieces is a round red circle with a star in the middle and a crown on the top of the circle. The words in the circle says only "Made in Japan." Any idea if this has any value.

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 important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

The pattern on the front is multi-colored flowers on a pale yellow background with a white center.
