Hello,

My name is Rarewares. Adding photos is free.

Attach or send pictures one at a time. Do not "batch upload" all at once
or none will got through.

COMPUTER- use the blue paper with arrow symbol by the SEND
to load one photo at a time by browsing your device. Write a word for each one in the writing
area before you hit send, something like front, side or bottom so I know what the picture is.

The justanswer.com site starts on desktop, then they ask for your phone number. It does not mean
that you can reply to their texts and send pics that way.
You have to log into justanswer.com on your phone web browser to do that.

MOBILE/TABLET- you should be able to text them here.
Use the blue paper with arrow symbol next to the SEND button where it says Write your reply here.
Write a word FIRST, attach photo then hit send and do the next.

On Android, the symbol is very light grey and is on the left of the R in Reply.

Sorry slightly confused on price of cutlery cabinet , is the 300 without any of the cutlery ? Some of the cutlery is bone handled the rest is silver or silver plate , wondered what it would be priced at in total , many thanks

1) A circa 1890 to 1910 English mahogany cutlery cabinet with paneled doors (without cutlery), valued at 300GBP resale.

2) A set of silver plated bone handled cutlery from Hodgkinson of Sheffield valued at 300GBP, with other silver plated cutlery valued at 3GBP per piece.

I reassessed in cleared language, I hope that helps. Thank you for asking, I assumed it was all the bone handled.
