Hello,My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. There were no pictures that came in with your original inquiry.Please use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures of the set and any marks, labels or writing on the bottom.
My apologies, I was in a meeting.
I got the photos, but the bottom photo which is most important, is blurry. I would love if you could back up a bit and try again.All of the information that I need to decipher is in that area.
This is an electroplated three piece tea set made by John Round and Son between 1847 to 1874.
After 1874, the company name was changed to John Round and Sons Ltd. The pattern is number
5898 and the styling helps date the set closer to 1870 and the All THE Round trade name was used
beginning in 1870. The set seems to have been bought as a vintage set and presented in 1896.
This set has a current value of GBP 100.00 to 150.00 retail.To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top of your screen and hit submit, thanks!
An electro plate tea set by any maker would not have that kind of value.
I would say whomever purchased it got taken in some manner or the set was actually sterling silver.
That price sounds more like what a sterling set would be valued at.
I can't really explain the difference without seeing the actual set and sale page, these are just my assumptions, something about that does not sound correct.
