Hi Quincy...and thanks for this. Yes, antiques, my aunt left them to me and that is some time ago, they were antiques then. The detail on them is really stunning, they are Dickens characters.<quoted text>
I imagine you're "sawing logs" as mom used to say (zzzzzzzzz) but I meant to reply and even started an email. Looked them up on eBay and now know what a Toby Jug is. My aunts and uncles had all kinds of them. I thought of you when I came across a John Lennon one.
The budding prices range a lot. Are your vintage? Antiques? Use that to you advantage and even do a little of your own research on eBay to see what other sellers are charging. Are you going to ship international or just UK? I've done both. Take and upload some really good photos -- reference the china manufacturer if the labels are still there.
Good luck -- will follow up with email.
I would hand them down but they do not appeal to any younger members of my family.
You mention good starting points and I am grateful for that...needed to know if I can set a secure price really.
