Find the value of fine china

Perhaps you have a china cabinet filled with mismatched pieces from your great-grandmother or a full set of china squirreled away in the attic gathering dust, and you’re starting to wonder what it’s really worth. The key to determining the value of your fine china is identifying what you have, when it was made, and who made it.

HOW TO FIND A THE VALUE OF YOUR FINE CHINA

First, try to identify the maker's marks on the bottom of your pieces. Then, do as much research as you can about the markings you're able to identify; try to search for each word and symbol you find. If you're having trouble getting started, one of our Fine China Specialists can help. If you have china decorated with the same pattern or markings, they are likely a set, and therefore more valuable than separates. Though it's not mandatory to sell china 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.

INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR FINE CHINA

If it’s cracked or chipped, it likely has little or no value, unless it’s old (pre-1900) or from a few specific artists. The next thing to do is to look for a marking that indicates the manufacturer. This could be a stamp, a logo, or initials. This is a key piece to determine the value. Additionally, look for a date located near this marking. Dates aren’t always included, but when they are it’s hugely helpful.
