Eight place sitting of China
Thanks so much, Lois, for getting back to me with the piece count.
Noritake china is quite soft on the current auction market (the values Mearto provides are for auction purposes). Large sets (more than 100 pieces) can bring an average of $1-5 per piece but small sets (around 50 pieces or less) are bringing considerably less, sometimes not averaging even $1 per piece. Here are a few recent auction sales of Noritake Casablanca sets to give you an idea of what they are being priced at, and what people are willing to pay for them:
A 54-piece partial Noritake part silver gilt dinner service
Made in Japan, mid 20th Century
Casablanca pattern, comprising:
8 dinner plates
8 dessert plates
8 salad bowls
8 dessert bowls
8 cups and 8 saucers
sugar bowl and cream pitcher
2 serving bowls
PROVENANCE: acquired in Japan
$50-75 (represents a fair market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary).
Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.
