Hello, and thank you for your question. I am reviewing it now and will reply again in a moment. ~Nora

Hi,

Thank you for your patience.

These are antique English Staffordshire wares by Samuel Radford from Longton.

The English Registry Numbers indicate that these were made in 1893.

The fine china for dining market is currently slumped. Sets do not sell for what they used to sell for a few decades ago and the market was further impacted by the Recession.

Value of your set is 235GBP.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you here.

Sincerely,

Nora

Thank you. Is there any worthwhile platform to try and sell?

Hi,

You are very welcome.

My pleasure to have been of help to you here.

Though it may sound cliche, a great platform for selling is on Ebay. It is where the most potential buyers would first go to search for such items. You can also try listing on Craigslist, through a for sale forum group on Facebook on offerup.com and letgo.com or a local consignment shop. I do not recommend selling direct to a dealer, as a dealer will offer 10% - 30% of the lowest perceived value.

Hi I signed up for a 7 day trial today and have asked 2 questions. When I clicked on your link it asked me to sign up again and for my card details. Not sure what to do? Thanks

Hi,

I am sorry that is happening.

I really only handle valuation questions in this category.
