Customer Question
We have a set...

We have a set of Grindley dishes, "flower festival" pattern, six dinner plates and six pie plates. Gold trim, green outer edge. Are they of 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.

They are from my wife's grandmother, so early 20th century. They are from my wife's grandmother. So, early 20th century.

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

The glaze is finely cracked, visible in oblique lighting.

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Is it possible to upload photos of the item, including any and all marks/signatures?

There should be a +ADD FILES feature next to our Send button.

If not, then there is a paperclip above the reply box that you click to attach photos.

The photos won’t upload unless you also have at least one word in the text box! You won’t see the attached photo along with the text before you post it, but you will see the paperclip or attach button turn green.

Alternately, you can upload them to the free site www.imgur.com and post the link here.

If that doesn’t work, please reach out to Customer Service for help at no additional charge:

I look forward to working with you.

Sincerely, Jennifer
