I want to identify the maker of a silver tea set marked 800.

I want to identify...

I want to identify the maker of a silver tea set marked 800. I wish to sell the set but I do not know the company who made it.

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 silver is beautifully carved with flower and stems with leaves. Teapot has rose type top.

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

I need to send picture of marks so it can be identified. It is hard to describe with words the marks

Thank you, ***** ***** took so long to send pictures

No problem at all.

Do you have the lid to the sugar and a tray?

Ask Your Own Antiques Question

Hello

I found the information on this, this did not come with a lid on the sugar bowl.

The company that made this is M H Wilkens Shone, Bremen Hemelingen Germany, circa: late 1800's .

it is sterling.

.

The 3 Pc Sterling Tea Set has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $1***-**-****.00 if sold at an auction(a local auction ) it would sell for a little less, if this were sold in a High End Antique Shop in a larger city it would sell for $1200.00 and up depending on the condition. If I were selling it I would list it for $1450.00
.
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 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. I would be happy to help you with any items in the future.
