FIND OUT MORE ABOUT YOUR WARES

Ceramics and pottery includes a wide range of items, including common items such as bowls, plates, teapots, vases and figurines, as well antiques that include porcelain, terracotta, and bone china. You may have recently inherited these collectibles or scored a few at an Estate Sale or Consignment Shop, and now you want to know what they are worth. Simply submit pictures of your item and any unique characteristics and we will return an Instant Appraisal from one of our Savvy Ceramics & Porcelain Specialists. 

IDENTIFY CERAMIC SETS TO MAXIMIZE VALUE

If you have serveware decorated with the same pattern or markings, they are likely a set. Though it's not mandatory to sell ceramics pieces as sets, it can help increase their resale value as collectors are often trying to complete sets themselves. Not sure if pieces were made by the same maker or are of the same product line? No problem – our Savvy Specialists will help as part of our Evaluation process.

KNOW IF YOUR COLLECTIBLES ARE REAL OR FAKE

Over 6,000 stamps and markings have been used to identify ceramics and pottery over the past 2,000 years. These collectibles have proven to have some serious resale value over the years, and where there are valuables there are fakes. Our Savvy Specialists can help you confirm authenticity, but there are a couple of quick things you can do as well. First, you can feel (with your fingers) a marking that has been stamped or marked by a maker. Second, is to take a close look at the weight of the marking. 

HOW TO FIND VALUE OF COLLECTIBLES

Once the item's maker is confirmed, identifying the product line and item number is best handled by a Savvy Specialist who uses reference guides, historical listings, and maker pricing guides to provide historical context about the item. Additionally, item valuation ranges for resale and insurance purposes.
