Q: I have a full set of Sugar & Spice dinnerware and am curious to find out how much it would be worth. It’s marked with a crown, lion and unicorn and says it was made in Staffordshire, England. The set is in the original containers, never used, and is in mint condition. How would I go about getting it priced?
A: Sugar & Spice dinnerware was made by Johnson Brothers of Hanley, Staffordshire, England. The company was founded by Alfred and Frederick Johnson in in 1883. Two more brothers joined the business later. It became part of the Wedgwood Group in 1968. Manufacturing moved to China in 2003 and stopped in 2015 when Waterford Wedgwood was bought by Fiskars. Sugar & Spice was made from 1974 to 1978 in blue or brown. Sets of dinnerware don’t sell well. If you want to sell the set, you might do better selling individual pieces. You can find prices on several sites online. eBay has a plate for $8.50. Replacements has a plate for $20 and a cup and saucer for $8.
