Hello Delia:
Why does Queensware lack a Wedgwood stamp or mark? And does the estimate take into consideration that it has a two-inch harline crack near the spout or lip underneath. I wonder if restoration is worth it.
Thanks for your quick assessment.

Thank you for pointing out the crack, which I happened to miss as I read the description and didn't notice in the photos; I've updated the description and value.
I don't know why Queensware does not have the Wedgwood mark.
Not many people use these any more, functionally; rather they are decorative and often used to put dried flowers in etc. The value would increase to $300-500 if it were repaired but I don't know if you could find someone to fix it well enough for a low enough price to be worth it.
