Customer Question
I have a children's...

I have a children's china set from the early 1900's. Cup, saucer and plate. The back of the plate says "The Trenle China Co. Virginia" with a crown in the middle. There is a little girl holding a cat with three dachshunds looking at her on the plate, also a little boy on a wooden rocking horse with a dachsund and a baby pulling the tale of a black dachshund in from of a standing mirror. Is there any value to this set?

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?

The cup also has the little boy on the rocker and a little girl with a broken doll and a black dachshund on the other side of the cup. All three pieces have a gold rim. The saucer has the baby with the mirror and a little girl holding a tablecloth while a black dachshund is pulling it off a table. My aunt had this set and she was born in 1898.
