To Orwell Today,

Just wondering if you can tell me the value of the Willow pattern Jug and a Willow pattern Chamber Pot with old colouring and Japanese symbols on the bottom of both. I've attached pictures of what I have:


Kind Regards,
Carrieann Morris

Greetings Carrieann,

Wow, that's a fantastic Blue Willow jug -- and the chamber pot is unique too -- I've never seen those pieces before.

As to their monetary value I have no idea -- maybe try dropping by an antique store and see what they suggest.

All the best,
Jackie Jura
