Hi Steven

Thanks for the interesting valuation request.

The Company of Wood & Sons Ltd which made "Woods Ivory Ware" is not to be confused with the over 30 other factories all of the name 'Wood' OR 'Woods'. There are several different companies just named 'Wood & Sons'!

Your factory was based at the Trent & New Wharf Potteries, Burslem, Staffordshire, England. "Woods Ivory Ware" was made from 1930 onwards - mainly in the 1930's and 40's.

Normally, "Woods Ivory Ware" plates fetch £2 - £3 GBS ($3 - $5 USD) each. Please note, though, I am not a china expert by any means, just an artisan within the industry, so the first thing to say is I NEVER do valuations myself. This is a specialist area with vast amounts of knowledge and research material required.

However, I have written a special page to help people learn how to get a good idea of what their china wares might be worth:

help needed on design - 'woods ware'
by: Anonymous

Hello,
I have just purchased a 6 piece set of teacups, saucers and plates from a charity shop for £15, the mark 'woods ware' is on an urn in the back of the plates and bottom of cups, and round the edge of the urn it says 'Enoch 1784' and the other side it says 'Ralph 1750' I know these are not the dates they are produced from. From what I have looked up it seems to be original the only thing I dont know about it is above the urn it says 'Osborne' and I havent been able to find any information about this particular design anywhere or what its worth. so any help or information would be greatly appreciated.

I do not remember where I could the King VIII Coronation Cup. Now that I found it again, stuck away in a closet downstairs, I wonder if it has any value

About Valuing Your China Wares...


Often people ask me for valuations and really, I am not qualified to do that - you need expert training and much antiquarian experience to do that job.

However, what I have done is write a page especially to help visitors get an idea of the worth of their wares and also, if they feel the need a safe place to contact reliable and bona fide professional appraiser - checked out by me personally.
