Fancy China


My mom has a full service for 12, minus one coffee cup, with platinum trim. She'd like to be rid of it, so I'm putting out the word that it's for sale, Best Offer. She lives north of Baltimore near Jarrettsville, MD, since shipping it would be extreme expensive, so going to her place would be best.

If you or anyone you know might be interested, I can email photos and specific details of how many different pieces she has. Contact me via email or PM.

Please!! Otherwise, she'll try to foist it off on me.

If you get no offers here, you might try contacting a Bed & Breakfast. When I sold my grandmother's china, a B&B bought the set and didn't care that pieces were missing. They paid the price I was asking, too, with no haggling. I got much more than the local antique store had offered me.

You might also look at a site called Replacements (too lazy to look up the URL). They sell individual pieces when people have a breakage to china they like that's discontinued. They also buy pieces. If you don't know the pattern name often they can look at a picture and tell. Or the name might be on the back of the china.
