My mother has two china cabinets full of china and crystal.

Customer Question
My mother has two...

My mother has two china cabinets full of china and crystal. Really need help to find the value of these treasures. Some from England, Norway and all over the world. No idea how to start. Help please.

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

There's an entire set of the yellow rose pattern china from England. Also, a set of the pink rose pattern china from England.

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

There's several tea sets from Japan from WW2.
