Q:         I have a complete set of six Gorham silver-plated bronze figural bells. They date from the late 1970s and were sold as limited editions by the Hamilton Collection. The series is titled “Women Who Changed the Course of History.” The set includes Catherine the Great, Marie de Medici, Marie Antoinette, Isabella I, Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots. Please tell me the current value of the set.

A :       Your bells were part of the fad of limited edition plates, figurines and bells so popular in the 1970s. Each bell sold back then for $75, and 5,000 sets were made. Today you would be lucky to get $200 for the set.

i have 15 of these wooden crates that were shipped from France to Germany in 1946. Inside these are decorative wooden trays.plates and more. My father n law was given these in 1972. he has left them to my husband and we haven't been able to find out what they are worth or where they are from. The shipping labels are still intact to most of them. Also inside some of them are handmade straw ducks made out of beautiful floral fabric, we did have them checked at the antique roadshow in Columbus Ohio fifteen years ago.In one of them there was 4 stained glass panels made with pewter around the edges. A coat of arms, president George Washington. On the sides of the crates they are stamped with large letters in black that says WWII ammunition on them. If I could send them to you that would be wonderful. Thank You candy stein
