Determining the Value of a 1940s Tableware Set

Category Miscellaneous

These dishes are from the 1940s and have been in the family since then. The only mark on the bottom is "Made in USA". They are hand painted and rather pretty, but I have no idea if they are worth anything at all.

Go to Replacements website, and search for your pattern. Then you can see what the pieces sell for there, and it should give you an estimate of their worth. You don't have to know the name, but can usually search by a description.

I just discovered that replacements can also help identify a pattern, if it's not printed on the bottom.
There's a place on the website called "Identify My Pattern" (or something like that).
You take a picture of the item and email it to them.
I used this to identify some crystal - I got an answer the next day.

Your china looks like "Carnival ware". Try getting a book on Carnival ware.

The look like they might be from the FireKing line of dinnerware - very delicate and appear translucent. I don't think they're worth a ton of money but they are just lovely.

Go to www.replacements.com. If you can't find it immediately because you don't have much information, you can call them or download this picture for them to go by.

They are lovely, and worth a lot as a family heirloom to some people.
I hope you keep them in the family.
