I have a family heirloom Mauser five piece tea set, which dates back to the 1890's. Can you give me any idea of its value. Thanks in advance.

Answer
Hello.

I'm not familiar with this particular set. I assume it's made of sterling (it should lave the word, "Sterling", on the bottom).

Based upon recent sales of similar sets from Mauser on eBay, you set's value may fall between $2500 and $3500. I'd get a second opinion.

Best wishes,

Jim
