I have an entire set of Syracuse China, Made in America, Evening Star pattern. Is there any value other then sentimental to this china set.

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.

My husband's parents were married in the early 1940's and so it was purchased between the 1940's and 1960s. That is pretty much it.

Hi,

Thank you for your patience.

In general, the fine china for dining market is slumped. Sets do not sell for what they used to a few decades ago and the market was further impacted by the Recession.

With that said, your set has the quintessential Eames - Atomic era design which is a hallmark of Mid Century Modern style. 'Mid Century Mod' style is very popular for current home decor.

Evening Star was produced by Syracuse china from 1955 - 1967.

On today's market, your set could sell for $600 - $700 at auction.
