Where is the best place to sell china?

I've picked up a box of assorted china, some of it fairly good stuff: royal doulton, spode, etc.
It is no use to me, but china does not seem to sell very well on eBay.

Where is the best place to sell such things?

you could sell it at Jacobs market in Cardiff but I suppose it is a bit of a trek for you Confused

make sure you check how much they are worth and that none are on the website wanted list

some odd pieces -- especially things that get borken like tea pot lids are worth more than a few bob Very Happy

Are you listing it UK only on E-bay?
The Yanks love that sort of thing if you don't mind packing it carefully.

How much did you want for your silver maple tea pot set?

Is it in a good condition?

I may be interested for the B&B

China is not my department, I have no idea what any of it is worth, nor how to find a value, that site looks very useful. Thankyou.

I leave that kind of thing to Rob, and I think he is aware of the American market, but thanks for the tip.

I'm a potteries man and used to sell china. Its most unfortunate that we recently lost my favourite uncle who really new his stuff. He was the decorating manager at Beswicks for many years and after that actually helped set up the decorating department at Border fine arts. He had a good side line going at one time buying and selling china.
A trip to the public library would be useful. certainly in the Stoke.on' Trent Library, they have sime very useful and revealing books

Many of the auction houses have specialist ceramic auctions.

You probably have already, but I'd be on E-bay trying to match up the prices on there with what ypu have.

Fashions come and fashions go in pottery. My mum has amassed quite a bit of Wedgewood over the years and I was suprised to how the price of that was very poor a few years ago. Dinner service sets also seem to have faired poorly in recent years.

I have had a look, but not found any sets the same, there are similar so I've had some clues.

So true, I bought some lovely Susie Cooper plates at the Carmarthen Antiques Fair over Christmas, was chatting to the seller about them and he was saying their value had plummeted since he'd bought them hoping to make a few pennies.

Having said that, I had a look on Ebay and saw one dinner plate was £29.99 whereas as my mixed box of saucers, side plates, various size dinner plates cost me £10 Smile

They do? I've tried selling some of my grandmother's old collectible plates numerous times. No dice. Very frustrating. I've also got a bunch of china, both collectible plates and the real stuff to sell, but am not really sure where to start....
