Royal Vale 'Cottage' Teaset - ? value

Dear Mary

Many thanks for submitting, and hope you are finding the site generally useful for research. You have a nice Royal Vale set c.1959. Although these bone china sets are considered Granny's old fashioned taste nowadays, there is a growing trend towards vintage, and I have seen these quality bone china tea sets described increasingly as 'shabby chic'.

To answer your question, if I had a nice set of Royal Vale tea cups & saucers like this, I would not take them to a car boot sale. Personally, I would sell them on ebay.

From what I could see, within the UK market, Royal Vale tea sets like yours fetch around the £30 GBP prices.

I also run a service where collections and items can be sent for valuation analysis by professional appraisers, but in this case I don't think you don't need this service.

However, when you get items donated and want to research their value yourself, be sure to go to my self-research tips pages
