Customer Question
I own a set...

I own a set of Cristolfe Ruban Croisés 12 place settings as well as serving utensils. Each setting has: large and small knives, large and small forks, and 3 spoons..espresso, dessert, and soup spoon. How would I go about placing a value on 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?

My husband received this set in 1980, and they are still in the original boxes

What are the serving utensils? These can add as much as 30% of value to a set.

there is a large serving fork, two large serving spoons, a large cake server, and then some other large serving utensil that almost looks like a smooth Native American arrowhead...lol

Christofle makes patterns named Ruben. but not Ruben Croises. Ruban Croises is made by Chambly.

Please check your marks.
