Hi, I have pieces of porcelain from Austria probably,with a family crest of an N wrapped in a belt overlapping at the bottom the N is quite decorated difficult to describe The porcelain is white wth blue and Gold leafy type handles. I have what appears to be a small soup tureen and a cake stand I have tried to identify the crest There are no manufacturer's marks underneath. if you could point me in the right direction that wd be very helpful. thank you Sheila

yours sincerely Sheila
Thank you Sheila these are perfect. I will work on getting this completed for you and post back here as soon as I am done today. Thank you for asking or I would have never known you sent the photos. -Tanya
Hi Sheila, I have been unable to match the N to any other Austrian pieces. The pattern I have seen on dishes and such so I will be able to evaluate this. The soup tureen style and design is 1780-1800s. The N is a family monogram to which family I can not place. The piece has been broken and repaired. It looks to have been repaired by a specialist of the time I see the gold overlay in the creases of the repair probably around the 1890-1910s period. The tureen has a value of 500-550.00 in the condition it is in today. If there was no repair and perfect in condition value would have been 1500-1800.00 in today's market. If I can help further please let me know.
To sell this you could expect one half to one third the value as dealers or collectors wish to buy lower then value. are all good sites to list this on. collectors check these sites for fine antiques and porcelains.
Thank you and I am glad you were able to post photos here. I have not heard from the support I did email and asked about the photos.

Thank you very much for the reply. I'm surprised at the value when we can't trace the crest! I also have a cake stand. My son who lives in Austria is trying to trace it. I will pursue and hope I can find an answer. Yours sincerely Sheila
