Nice query from K Corfield on Mortlocks of London. Thanks.
You have some very high quality wares.
Mortlocks of London (1746 to c.1930) were very prestigious and old established retailers in the heart of the West End. I say retailers, but they did also have a London decorating studio.
They worked with the very top china manufacturers - the like of Minton and Aynsley. So your wares are high quality. That's about as much as I can tell you. About the value you may need an appraiser to interpret this for you.
Hope this helps.
