Good morning/afternoon
I am clearing out my mothers house as she sadly passed away recently, and i have come across a padded wicker basket containing 6x L’Hirondelle porcelain dishes, believe they may be tart dishes. Do you know if these are worth anything as i don't want to dispose of them if someone would be interested in purchasing them?
Many Thanks

Hello, my name is Glenda
Thank you for coming to JustAnswer

After researching I found the set of 6 L’ Hirondelle porcelain Tart/Gratin Dishes in their original presentation basket ( which they sold their wares in these wonderful wicker baskets ) have an estimated value on the current market for an average of 135.00-140.00 GBP

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 would be happy to help you with any additional items you may have.
