Customer Question
I have several place...

I have several place settings that belonged to my grandmother who passed in 1963. It may have been her wedding china . It has the name Warwick on back. I have been unable to find the pink and yellow flower pattern on line. Any suggestions as to where I might focus my search?

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?

I just want to establish approximate age of pattern.

Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment. If you cannot send photos, I can still work with your descriptions; however, I can give more accurate answers if I have photos.
Can you send photos?
If so, then -
Please send ONE photo of ONE plate showing the pattern.
Please send a photo of the marks and/or words on the bottom.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.
If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "ADD FILES" in the blue box link (next to "SEND" or "SUBMIT") on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.
An explanation of this method can be found here:

http://ww2.justanswer.com/help/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert-hl

I do not send pop-up offers.

Please do not try to use the site email method of sending photos without specific instructions from me.

Kind regards,

Doris

i received one photo of a part of the pattern. What I really need is a clear in focus picture of the marks on the bottom.

Thank you for the excellent photos.

The mark is that of the Warwick China Co of Wheeling, West Virginia. They used this mark 1893-1898 so we can determine that your set was produced during that 5 year period.

Like most sets from this period, the pattern does not have a word name. If it were to be been assigned a number ID, that would appear on the bottom. Warwick produced many patterns similar to yours.

If you would like more pieces, you can request these replacement sites look for you.
