This answer was rated:

Hi, I have a selection of spoons, wondering whether they are worth anything, also a silver cigarette box. We have been emptying my late father's house. Thank you
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Does the spoon have unique or identifying markings?
Customer: Yes they do
JA: Do you know how old the spoon is? What condition is it in?
Customer: Well to be honest I haven't cleaned them yet, and wouldn't like to say, really not sure
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: Spoons probably about 20, the cigarette box has got 'granted by the cutlers co. 1836, viners of sheffield' on it
Customer: replied 9 days ago.

Good Morning

Thank you for choosing Just Answer

If your spoons are Sterling Silver on average they are valued at 25.00-40.00 GBP depending on the size. If elaborately decorated then slightly higher in value 45.00 and up. The sterling Silver Cigarette box is valued at 70.00-75.00

If you plan on selling. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
Facebook Marketplace is how most people post things for sale locally.

Etsy is a great site. There is also craigslist locally which is free. Ebay is a great option. It does reach a lot of people, but items tend to sell a little lower on there If you do decide to try Ebay, I recommend setting reserves.

.
I hope you have a good day.

It was a pleasure working for you.
