Customer Question
I have a set...

I have a set of Royal Grafton tea service. What are they worth

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 bottom says Royal Grafton, fine bone china, made in England, with a crown. it is numbered, looks like 1930 or 193d

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

I don't know. The bands in the cup star art gold, the a blue gold pattern than white with floral at the bottom.

My name is ***** ***** I'd love to help. Let me know the pieces in the tea set.
Use the +Add Files feature next to the SEND button to upload photos of the pattern, including maker's marks.
The feature works best when you add ONE picture, put a word in the text box, hit send, then do the next.

That just shows the file path on your computer, this is not the actual photos.

I can still help without photos if you are having trouble.

Just let me know what pieces are in the set (how many cup/saucer sets, pot, creamer, sugar and dessert plates, etc.).
