    Hi Dr. Lori. I have a 40 years old dinner ware by Nikko Japan from my mom I am contemplating to sale or keep. How do I contact you and how much is your appraisal fee ?

    When I meet my maker I will ask if he put lead in my glaze.

    Informative video, but I really don't understand the stridency over foam sheets for protecting dishes. Yes, they will have an insulating effect, so will "retain heat," however, china and porcelain are not mammals, or nuclear power plants: they don't generate their own heat; so, unless one is storing their antique china next to a heater, or in an un-insulated attic, or some other place that gets very warm, using foam sheets makes no difference whatsoever. China doesn't heat itself, so there will be no heat to be retained. It seems to me that the more pertinent advice would be to keep your china stored in a cool environment.

    I have a set passed down from grandmother Hallcraft by Eva Zeisel Classic and Shape. Well some say Classic and then some just say Classic shape. I don't know the value or if that means two sets. I have probably 70 pieces I would say give or take. Amazing like new condition. Looking to sell it but don't know where to take things like this. Can someone help guide me in right direction? Thank you

    Dr Lori. I have a large set of Shelley China. My mother purchased it in London in 1956. They are in pristine condition. No chip or cracks. The pattern. Is blue rimmed with small pink and blue flowers. How do I know if it is collectable and it's worth. The pattern is 2326.
