I have Lenox China hancock pattern. Service for 12. I have the coffee pot. Tea pot. Sugar bowl. Creamer. Salt and pepper shakers. Coffee cups & saucer. Covered vegetable dish and I think that's it. I also have 3 Tiffany vine vases. Some Bacarat crystal vases and a Lalique figurine. Please tell me how I go about finding the value of these things and mainly selling them. Or getting someone to seek them for me. Shipping would be ridiculous on the China and I would only sell the set. I have googled some of the items. I was wondering if there's a service that will come in and buy it all or sell it for a %. I am in the NYC area.
If it were me I'd find in NYC a consignment or antique store. Have you tried Googling or Yellow Pages search for that?
For example, an hour's drive away in New Canaan CT. there's a consignment shop that handles china. I've been to places like this and it's a viable solution. My ex sold her mom's china for a reasonable price here.:
Thank you! I hadn't thought of that. I will look into it
Way back in 2001, it took 1 month to sell her china.
My ex also found an amazing special mail-order business that provides a service where you can buy most replacement china and silverware pieces. She had owned a gift shop (in New Canaan CT) so she knew all kinds of places like this.
