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.

@Sueme,
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.:

Good luck.

@Sueme,
Here's an excerpt from Severed Ties webpage:

"Severed Ties, LLC always needs quality consignments. Call first for an appointment so that we can set aside some time to work with you on your items. Alternatively, we can frequently determine acceptability and selling price from pictures which you can send via email to [email protected]. House calls are also available by appointment.

The consignor receives 55% (minus applicable 6.35% CT state sales tax) of the selling price. Consignor checks are sent in the beginning of each month with a statement for all items that have sold in the previous month. The items are the property of the consignor until they sell and may be taken back at any time. Consignors agree that Severed Ties can reduce items by 10% for each month that they have been in the shop. After an item has been in the shop several months and has not sold, the consignor will be contacted to retrieve the piece.

We look forward to working with you. "

@Sueme,
Good luck.

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.
