In line with all British Museums, the Museum of Royal Worcester is not licensed to provide valuations and cannot comment on value under any circumstances.


The Museum website carries a number of informative fact sheets including ones on dating your porcelain.


To obtain a valuation for your porcelain, it is best to consult a licensed auctioneer or specialist antique dealer who will be able provide a valuation for insurance, sale or probate. In most cases they will need to see the object in question or a good photograph of it.

The following list is not a recommendation; further names and addresses can be found in your local telephone directory and websites usually give further details.

You can also visit the website for the UK professional assocation for valuers and auctioneers here for advice on what to look for in a valuation service.
