For estate planning purposes...

For estate planning purposes, I'm rounding up stuff with a view toward a will. I

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 Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I've inherited my Grandmother's 12-place set of German China labeled Continental Ivory 18. Gilt edges and a floral pattern. trying to find what it's worth.

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

There's a tea service which goes with it; a serving platter, and a gravy boat.

Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment. If you cannot send photos, I can still work with your descriptions; however, I can give more accurate answers if I have photos.
Can you send photos?
If so, then -
Please send ONE photo of ONE plate showing the pattern.
Please send a photo of the marks and/or words on the bottom.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.
If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "ADD FILES" in the blue box link (next to "SEND" or "SUBMIT") on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.
An explanation of this method can be found here:

http://ww2.justanswer.com/help/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert-hl

I do not send pop-up offers.

Please do not try to use the site email method of sending photos without specific instructions from me.

"Complete Sets" come in many different sizes.
Please tell me the following -
How many people does your set serve? (These are called place settings.) 12?
How many pieces does each person have?
What serving pieces are there? These can add as much as 30% to the value of a set.

!!!!!Please do not send photos of the whole set. I cannot tell what pieces are in a set via such a photo!!!!

Kind regards,
Doris

I’m gonna have to have an appraiser come by and look. Sorry ‘bout that. There’s more to it than just the China.
Appraiser: Doris, Personal Property Appraiser replied 6 months ago

i would be happy to help.

Please know that it is a conflict of interest for an appraiser to buy or sell for you items he/she has appraised.

Kind regards,

Doris
