Question
Hi Mr. Stinger, I would like to know the value of this tea pot set, is it worth having the handles for the teapot and sugar bowl reattached? or just go out buy a new set. Thanks for your time

Answer
Hello.

AS far as I can tell, this set is made of silver plate. If it was made of sterling, there would be some indication of that fact stamped on the bottom. Therefore, the value is probably not great. I do not know how much it would cost to have the handles reattached but I'd be willing to bet it would be prohibitive.

Look at actual recent sales of similar sets on eBay to get a good idea of value. For silver plate sets, condition is important in determining price. Sets like this in good condition often sell in the $50 to $100 range.

Best wishes,

Jim
