Hello and Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** am a Personal Property Appraiser and would be happy to assist you with your question.
Could you tell me what pieces are included in your set as well as the number of settings.

For example coffee cup x 12

saucer x 12

Coffee Pot x 1

This way I can give a better assessment of value based on the entirety of the set?

Thanks

6x cups. 6x saucers. 1x cream jug. 1x sugar bowl. 1x coffee jug with lid

I can send photos
Expert:  Frank replied 9 days ago.

So based on a combination of both recent secondary sales prices as well as replacement values for the set the insurance value for your Aynsley Orchard Gold Coffee Set would bring a replacement value of 2300GBP-2600GBP.

This is assuming that the set is in excellent condition.

Expert:  Frank replied 9 days ago.

If there were any chips cracks or damage to the set which includes any missing gold paint this would detract from the insurance value.

I’m not paying £16 for a phone call

No phone call necessary. We are all good right here.

Let me know if that info all got through and if there are any problems.

Hope this helped you out today.

Thank you and goodbye
Expert:  Frank replied 9 days ago.

Assuming the pieces have no damage I wouldnt need to see the photos. I was basing the evaluaton off of the Aynsley Orchard Gold sets I was able to find.

You are welcome .

Have a great day
