Customer Question
I have a jug...

I have a jug and wash basin (Matched pair) from Grimwades Winton any idea on value?

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.

It belonged to my Grandmother. Jug has a flower design around 4 of the 8 sides and is approx 340mm tall and bowl is 440mm in diameter

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

It has numbers or letters marked in the pottery underneath and number written prior to being fired which are 2541 both on jug and wash bowl

A Grimwade Winton wash basin and pitcher has an estimated retail value of $140-190.

Online auctions like eBay generally bring wholesale selling prices.

If you would like to sell close to estimated retail, some ideas are:

The internet has your largest audience of buyers. Place small ads on these sites or set up your own small store on these sites.

Be sure to specify local pick up only for large items. That way the buyer would be responsible for obtaining his own insurance and transport.

These sites carry antique as well as vintage items.
Accept PayPal only.

Etsy.com - small fees-20 cents to list plus 3.5% final price.
Artfire.com

These sites are excellent and more upscale but fees are higher. I only recommend them if you have several items to sell.

Rubylane.com
Tias.com
cyberattic.com
trocadero.com
https://www.justcollecting.com

Or your nearest CraigsList.com where you can list items for free. Accept cash only.

Ultimately, to obtain these retail values we assume the piece or set is in good condition and that the final value depends on sale geographic location.

In general, a private seller to a dealer, via consignment or at auction can expect 30-50% of estimated retail value.

Insurance replacement values are usually about 20% more than retail values.
