I have 9...

I have 9 place settings of Thomas Ivory Bavaria china, including serving pieces in excellent condition and would like to know it’s 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.

The pattern is Sylvia and some of the pieces have different letters at the bottom of the Thomas Ivory ensignia

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

Not that I know of

This is your answer, please read entirely.
.
The Sylvia Pattern by THOMAS China, Bavaria Germany service for 9 with extras has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $800.00-950.00 if sold at an auction(a local auction ) it would sell for a little less,at around $500.00-525.00, if this were sold in a High End Antique Shop in a larger city it would sell for $950.00 and up depending on the condition. If I were selling it I would list it for $950.00

.
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is Offerup.com, Varagesale.com, Wanelo.com, www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com and letgo.com.
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
There is also Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. You can also sell on Charish, where you consign items. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
.
If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.
.
It was a pleasure working for you. If you have more items you need values for. Just send to "Glenda Only" I would be happy to help.
