Royal Vale Cup & Saucer - What Is The Value? I have just found a cup and saucer in a box from my husbands attic and can't find anything matching this pattern. It is stamped on the cup black letters, crown on top then inside oval, royal vale, bone china,underneath made in england,then 3 gold marks ''' and appears to be in gold 9466 or 94LL (hard to read) same stamp on saucer exept no gold lettering. Cup and saucer are pale pink with gold sunflower chinz like pattern. Any info you could give me on this would be appreciated.



Hi Vicki

I'll try to help best I can. The significant pottery marking for dating Royal Vale is the 'Ridgway' back-stamp. If there is no Ridgway, it could be older pre-1950's - back to the heyday of the Colclough Company before it merged with Ridgways.

As regard valuing - you need to go to the main Royal Vale page on my site, click the auction value price guide link. There you will get a constantly updated and specially coded search direct to all Royal Vale bone china cups and saucers.

I just looked there and I can see the average 'start' price for a Royal Vale bone china cup and saucer is around $5.00. There were a couple of 'but-it-nows' at $15.00, but mostly around $8 or $9. However, the older H J H (Colcloughs) were arounf $30 start price.

You could have a valuable little trinket on your hands.

If you want identify the patter in order to build on the collection, Ebay is a good source because you can check, say once per week, by bookmarking my page and just one-clicking the link which is constantly updated and specially coded (more direct and quicker than going direct to Ebay with there rather cumbersome system).

If you need more specific id of your pattern go to: specialist valuers

You'll need to copy the whole of that URL address and pay a small fee to them if you go ahead and decide to use their service.

Hope that helps.
