I have be given...

I have be given a charger plate and it says in the back Wiuterliug Schwerzenbach Bavaria Germany #4 Quautats Porzelain. Original Karlsbader Tiefatzkante echo- Gold Handerbeit. Do you know what this means and how much it might be with? It is a beautiful gold with cobalt blue couple on a swing in gold and around the rim has couples...

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 the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Wish I could take a picture but it’s all etched gold with blue around the center.

Why was I already charged the $43. When I have not received an answer. It should have only been the $5.

I would still appreciate your input, I just hope it’s worth more than that. I respect that you are a professional. Please continue with your research. Thank you

What looks like charger is probably a cake plate from a coffee service. See the translation .

Winterling Bros had a porcelain factory in the city of Schwarzenbach in Bavaria, Germany. This is a excellent quality porcelain rated as #4. It was decorated in etched gold in the city of Carlsbad in old Bavaria as part of a coffee service.

The estimated retail value is $110-150.

Online auctions like eBay generally bring wholesale selling prices. Sales in the eBay "Buy It Now" format are closer to retail.

If you would like to sell close to estimated retail, some ideas are:

The internet has your largest audience of buyers. Place small ads on these sites or set up your own small store on these sites.

Be sure to specify local pick up only for large items. That way the buyer would be responsible for obtaining his own insurance and transport.

These sites carry antique as well as vintage items.
Accept PayPal only.

Etsy.com - small fees-20 cents to list plus 3.5% final price.
Artfire.com

These sites are excellent and more upscale but fees are higher. I only recommend them if you have several items to sell.

Rubylane.com
Tias.com
cyberattic.com
trocadero.com
https://www.justcollecting.com

Or your nearest CraigsList.com or nextdoor.com where you can list items for free. Accept cash only.

Ultimately, to obtain these retail values we assume the piece or set is in good condition and that the final value depends on sale geographic location.

In general, a private seller to a dealer, via consignment or at auction can expect 30-50% of estimated retail value.

Insurance replacement values are usually about 20%-50% more than retail values.
