I had two sets of China and nobody wants it. I even checked the Dell's antique mall and they said it doesn't sell. The kids today don't want them sorry. I ended up donating mine and now I will be donating my moms stem wear. Good luck.

Check out replacement. com. They buy old china, crystal, and silver sets that were popular.

I agree with Dawn. I gave my mother's china away to a single mom who couldn't splurge on china. She was thrilled to have nice dishes for holidays. That was enough payment for me.

I sold a set of crystal to replacements. com. Received an online estimate, and received the payment in a reasonable amount of time. https://www.replacements.com

Nobody wants China or anything traditional. I had to give my Ethan Allen furniture away!

Plates. Don’t. Sell. It’s going on my tombstone. (I have organized our church rummage sale for many years. )

Agree with above comments. I ended up donating and/or selling my grandmother’s vintage Noritake china, circa 1920. My grown kids didn’t want it and after many years of lovingly using it, I got tired of storing it. Sad but true.

When I donated a bunch of China to Goodwill they said they get multiple China donations a week. 😞

Lower your expectations big time. I did get some money for the silver. that was melted down. No market for it.

So sad! Beautiful vintage China, crystal, silver not given a second look! New generation's haven't much sense on quality, long lasting memories etc. Cheap China crab that lasts a short time is what they want today. A throw away society! Ppl, try, try to teach your children, grandchildren a sense of quality, heirlooms from their ancestors!

I use the old China at a tea we do at a museum I work at. I just love doing vintage.

Following. My mom bought a full set of China at an estate sale for just 50. 00. We looked it up and seems to go for a hefty price. I would post but it’s 4am and I don’t know where she put it in the basement.

There may be an auction house that will auction it for you

‘Replacements’ is a store based in NC that buys and sells China ( and other dish ware). Although unless it’s really hard to find or an in demand pattern you probably wouldn’t get enough to cover shipping. But they may give you an idea of price. FYI the prices they post on their website is of course the marked up price- not even close to what they buy it for. My mother used to sell stuff to them she found in resale shops, garage and estate sales. She’d also wait until there was enough to pack the car and she and my father would drive down to NC to sell it.

Replacements is terrible. If it's a true brand, sell it yourself on ebay. you can research what similar sets have sold for there. I did that with my mom's China when she downsided and did quite well with it. You'll never get what you think it's worth though - but you will get what the market is willing to pay.

Village Treasure House in Glenview may take it on consignment but call before you go to find out if they are interested in your pattern. Replacements will offer you pennies on the dollar for what they sell the China for. Unfortunately the market for American made China just isn’t good, I donated my Franciscan wedding China to Avenues to Independence Resale Shop several years ago, hopefully someone is enjoying it.

I love old handpainted china. I use our china sets a lot. It makes every holiday more special. If it's nice you will sell it on Marketplace.
