Q: Can you tell me something about this Crown Ducal Ware mark? I have just been given these dishes from my late grandmother’s estate and need pricing for insurance.

A: Crown Ducal is a name used on some porcelain made by A.G. Richardson and Co., Ltd., of Tunstall and Cobridge, England, beginning in 1916. The company was bought by Wedgwood in 1974. Dinnerware is hard to sell. You can try to sell them to a resale shop in your area or donate them to a charity and take a tax deduction. A dinner plate might sell for $16 to $35, depending on the pattern.

Your article notes: “Dinnerware is hard to sell.”

I’m an antique dealer, strictly online from my own website. My wife and I are always on the look out for dinnerware sets – usually with 80-110 pieces. We’ve always had great success selling these sets, primarily Noritake and wares from England. Very good condition and serving pieces are one of our requirements.

It takes patience, a full explanation of the style and good pictures.
