Hello, May I ask for the pictures of the coffee set and of the botom with visable maker`s mark. Many Thanks.Joanna V.
That is ok. No problem. Get back to me with pictures as soon as you can. Limoges is known for fine-quality porcelain. With additional pictures (especially of the bottom) I will be able to date your set which is very important when it comes to appraisal. We need to establish how old is your set.
Unfortunately, I didn`t get the pictures. I will try to answer your question to my best ability without a photo. Limoges is a very good quality porcelain maker. As you know it is French and their china dates back to the 18th century. Prices vary but Victorian coffee/tea set, hand-painted, can fetch high prices, at least a few hundred pounds. From the information, you provided your set is a 3-piece. It could be worth £200 or over. I cannot give you more information because I cannot see your set. Perhaps ask your father for photos ( bottom is very important because it bears maker`s mark) and send them back to us for a more precise valuation.
Kind Regards. Joanna
yes, I understand but without images, I cannot help you further. Limoges had 27 china factories, all bear different marks, all had different designers over the years hence the maker`s mark is very important as well as the image of your tea set. Maybe in the near future when you`ll be able to visit your father, you can make some pictures and we will give you proper valuation.
