$50 for a used serving dish with a blurry brand stamp?  No thanks.

Take a better photo.  That thing could be worth $1 or $100, but I'm betting it's worth about $15.

Just checked completed listings on eBay.  That dish "sells" for between $20 and $30.  Unsold listings ask for $80 to $90, so there's clearly a big disconnect between what sellers think that china is worth and what buyers will actually pay for it.

I got a buddy who's an expert. Let me get him to check it out, and see if we can make deal.

Not to be a dick, but pay attention to how you frame your merchandise,  if the surroundings are dirty the viewer could be put off and that will drive away bidders.  Also,  FOCUS THE DAMNED SUBJECT!
just sayin..

Not subby here, but I tried to clean it up as best as I could. Got rid of the water rings, deepened the wood
tone a bit and did what I could to sharpen it up overall (still way blurry though):

2.5 quart?  That's pretty much useless, unless you throw your dinner parties for no more than 4 people.

Why is it called china?

So it's ok to post your ebay shiat on Fark now? Are you farking kidding me?

My wife would buy that since it matches our china, but she looked at it and told me that she thinks it's overpriced by about $25.00.

If you manage to sell it, pack the shiat out of it with bubble wrap and double box it with styrofoam peanuts between the boxes, otherwise you'll be sending your buyer a refund and eating the shipping costs too...

Hey everyone, lay off of subby!  He probably made and exposed his own glass emulsion plates for the photos; that's how much he cares about quality!  You people should consider yourselves lucky they're in color!

Seriously, every bonehead trying to sell crockery thinks their stuff is a rare antique.  One visit to an auction will confirm the truth -- that everyone is wrong.

Yup.  Mrs. Smurf had inherited some fine German dishes a few years before we met.  At the time she was told they were worth about $500 as a set.  When I looked up the going rate for the set the whole thing was closer to $200.  They're ugly and we'd love to sell them but even at $200 nobody is interested.
