Good Morning Jan,
The photos did not attach when you tried to upload them.

These are the photos of my tea service - please can you identify and give me an approximate evaluation.

Many thanks,







Hello Jan,
Thank you for sending over those photos.
Based on the marking as well as the wording, this looks to be a tea set produced by Crown Derby in Derby England in the first half of the 20th century.
Your tea servic which includes open sugar bowl, creamer, tea cup, saucer, under plate and cake plate would have a retail value of between 100-150 GBP. If there are any cracks, chips or crazing to the dishes, this would detract from the resale value.
I hope this information was helpful to you today Jan,
Best of luck with your vintage tea service,
Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated,
Thank You,
Please let me know if you have any difficulties with our rating system.
