Customer Question
I have a dinnerware...

I have a dinnerware set that is unmarked. how can I identify 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.

It is white the plate has hand painted purple flowers in three places on the flat part. It has a raised edge that has a silver vine/flower pattern around it.

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

The silver is under the glazing and there are a lot of fine hairline cracks under the glazing in the white.
