Customer Question
I have a serving...

I have a serving for 6 antique tea set with sugar and creamer pieces. I believe it is Chinese. There is only one mark on each piece. Can you help to value the set? I have pictures

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.

My wife inherited the set from her Aunt in Germany, she believes her Aunt received it from her husband as a wedding present in the 1930’s

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

How canI send you pictures

I’m sorry I just requested that Just Answer cancel my membership. I’m not at all happy with the system you’re using. It’s too complicated
