You have said in previous posts that you are in to decorating and antiques. I was wondering if I could ask you a question or two? Maybe? LOL. My mom had some furniture and some plates/ pewter/ silver stuff that was left to me when she died. I can tell you what the furniture is and how old it is because I remember when she bought it. I believe it is known as Chippendale or Queen Anne stuff. I have a writing desk, a sofa, a buffet(?), and piece that has 4 drawers and a pullout piece. Got no idea what that is called. What I assume is called a buffet is a two piece set that is two shelves on top and a drawer and two doors on bottom. I could take pics. Now the plates are wedge wood blue but what pattern...sheesh... tip of my tongue. They made a new set of these but the ones my mom has are old because she died in 05 and she had been sick for years. She collected these back in the 70s. They are old. From England I think...darn you know it I think. I also have a silver water server that has a spout that looks like a trophy. My mom and I used to go antiquing together...one of the only things we did together that I liked...lol. I have little antique glasses with stems. I have ice tea spoons shaped like mint leaves that have been passed down through our family for generations...at least 100 years old. None of these things are touched obviously...lol. Ok..my question...are any of these things worth anything or are they just sentimental...or would you actually have to see them to tell? I could take pics to send you.
