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.

That's fine, I can come back then, unless you happen to know the specific pattern?

THanks for your patience.

A reputable vintage china dealer would resell this set in the range of $600.00 - $800.00.

As an individual, you can expect to achieve around 40% of that, either selling via classified or selling to a dealer for resale.

You can try selling locally, through a Facebook Marketplace group, or on Etsy.

Or you can sell to a dealer like Replacements.com. That's usually the easiest option.

Sincerely,

Jennifer

Is there a charge for my question? It really is of no help. Donna
Antique Expert: AppraiserJM, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 5 months ago

I'm sorry that it's of no help. Exactly what sort of help were you looking for? I'm happy to continue working with you.

My understanding was that you were looking for selling options. In my opinion, Replacements.com would be the best option for this particular china. Were you looking for more selling options? I can pull some others for you.

Please keep in mind that this is an appraisal service only--we do not buy and sell, nor do we broker sales.
