i have a James dixon & son silver plate salver 26cm diameter with claw feet ... the hallmark is Ep (electro plate) J D & S the trumpet and numbers 4531S
JA: What would you like to learn about the plate?
Customer: basically i am clearing out and want to sell some things i don't need anymore and obviously don't want to over or undersell - so just a rough value
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. What's the age and condition of the plate?
Customer: no idea what age - but it was my grandmothers and has been a in a box for about 25 years in very good condition - probably just needs a polish
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: not really - thanks, Annette
