Customer Question

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?
JA: 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?
Customer: 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
