Customer Question
My mom passed and...

My mom passed and left me with 80 plates that i want to sell and am trying to put a value on them

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 plates are 4 ea Knowles / norman Rockwell, 8 ea Franklin / water birds of the world. 12 ea Gone with the wind, etc. Thanks lee

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

Most are stored in a multiple drawer case and do not have the original box. Excellent condition.

Hello Lee,

Unfortunately, I have to be the bearer of not good news. The market on vintage collectible plates of these type by Knowles (as well as Bradford Exchange, Franklin Mint and more) has slumped considerably. On today's market, these average $1 - $3 each at yard and garage sales and sometimes up to $5 to even $10 each online such as Ebay.

The add that I clicked on said "Appraisal" not "advice". I am looking for something more definitive for the money I spent.

Hello,

The plates you have carry an average value of $5 - $7 each on today's market.
