Q  :      I have a complete 65-piece set of dinnerware that includes place settings for eight and several serving pieces. The dishes have a wheat pattern in the center and a wide yellow border with gold trim. They’re marked “Century Service Corporation, Alliance, Ohio” around a triangle. The words “Semi vitreous dinnerware” are written inside the triangle. Underneath the mark are the words “Autumn Gold.” Many people tell me the set of dishes I have is worth money. What do you think?

A  :       Autumn Gold is the name of your dinnerware’s pattern. The dishes were made by Homer Laughlin China Co. and distributed by Century Service Corp., one of several companies owned by Cunningham and Pickett of Alliance, Ohio. Cunningham and Pickett was founded in 1935. It distributed china, glassware, silverware and other items made by other companies. Homer Laughlin made dinnerware for Cunningham and Pickett from 1938 until 1969. You can often find dishes in your pattern for sale online. A five-piece place setting of Autumn Gold sells for about $30, a vegetable bowl for about $20.
