Q: My plastic and metal Mickey Mouse tea set is in its original box and has never been opened. It has four plates, four cups and saucers, four sets of flatware and a teapot. The box is labeled “Wolverine Toys, Division of Spang, Inc., Walt Disney Product.” I paid $50 for the set a few years ago at a Midwestern antique shop. What is the set worth today?

A: Your Disneyana tea set was made after 1968, the year Wolverine Toy Co. of Pittsburgh was purchased by Spang Industries of Butler, Pa. The company moved operations to Arkansas in 1971. Disney tea sets, even plastic ones made in the 1970s, are wanted by collectors. Yours could sell today for $100 to $150.
