Reed & Barton Sterling Holloware Tea Set
Hi All!: Because of necessity I am cleaning out and selling my cool stuff from my Grandma and Aunt that loved their china, sterling, etc. I have a complete Sterling Holloware Tea Set with tray that is in excellent condition. it's the popular and gorgeous Francis I design. It has the tea and coffee pots, sugar, creamer w/lid and waste bowl..all are footed, even the tray. Wish i had a picture. I took it to an antique dealer that said it wasn't real sterling and offered $90.00 for it. I placed it on consignment at the local consignment store and she was pooh poohing it too. I went home dismayed and searched for the difference between Sterling and Sterling Holloware. What I did find was that I have an awesome tea set. It's commonly known as silverplate (has an EPNS with the world stamped on the back). So my question to the authorities out there is what should I price it at and should I take it off consignment and try to sell it myself?
I appreciate your feedback.
