I have a 12 setting tea set, with cups, saucers, side

This answer was rated:

I have a 12 setting tea set, with cups, saucers, side plates, a large (cake?) dish and jug. Underneath they say R. Delinieres & Cie, Limoges and D & Ce FRANCE. The design is delicate mauve and yellow pansies with gold stems and gold edging on white background. Can you give me any info?
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Does the tea set have unique or identifying markings?
Customer: I thought I just have you the markings.
JA: Do you know how old the tea set is? What condition is it in?
Customer: I think it's 1900 ish, not really sure. 1 cup is chipped, 1 has a crack and little hole, all the others are fine. All the plates and saucers are good, as is the big dish and the jug. There's a slops bowl but that is broken.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: No.


I'd like to see the item and the marks, writing or labels on the bottom or back.

Write any word in the message box

then choose only ONE picture then send. It will not let you do several at once.

On mobile phone, you should be able to respond to a text with pictures (one at a time works best).

On checking, 3 cups are chipped /broken and I only have 11 saucers. I'm on my mobile, how do I attach the photos? Do you need to send me a text I can reply to?
