Hi Sara

Lucky you! What a lovely thing to inherit. I am glad when I get an easy one like this because, being a mere enthusiast rather than an expert appraiser, I'm glad when I can save you some money.

All the clues point to the fact that this is a set by Adderley from their Daisy Bank Pottery in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffs, England (at this time the china mark was named after their founder William Alsager Adderley - WAA). Later, in the 1950's they taken over and renamed Royal Adderley.

If this assumption is correct the set is probably not bone china (bad news) but it is still quite old; normally the W.A.A. pottery mark is between 1876-86 (good news - very old and quite rare!). I believe the Daisy works was renamed in 1906, so this set must be older than that.

Read my full entry for Adderley here.

As for values, sometimes this public forum gets mistaken for a free valuation service. This is section of the website is designed to act as freely available database for us to help each other. However, when it comes to valuations, this is a specialist area because the value of vintage and antique china is, like anything else, subject to the whims and fancies of fashion. What is 'in' one moment and fetching high prices, is 'out' the next.....and visa versa. There are a lot of factors to take into consideration.

Hope this helps.

WAA Daisy pattern
by: Anonymous

I am very excited because I too inherited the Daisy pattern. I had assumed it was around 1850- 1860. I have around 140 pieces. ranges from butter pats, serving dishes, pretty much everything. I would love to add more to the set and find out more on this set. I have been trying to find anything for quite awhile.

WAA Blue Willow Cup & Saucer
by: Anonymous

I am trying to date a Blue Willow Cup and Saucer which has the ship and WAA (no & co) on the base of the saucer. It looks as though it did have a gilt rim at one time, but this is now worn.

Can you help me date this at all

Many thanks
