Kinver Crystal
« on: July 17, 2018, 08:32:53 PM »
I got 2 goblets from my stepfather who was from England. He was a wholesale importer and brought alot of interesting things home. We lived in Alexandria, VA USA then.
He has passed and the Kinver company is no longer in operation. I tried contacting them years ago but got no response. I would like to know a value...if there is any on these goblets. They are currently not insured. I brought them to an auction house and was told they are only worth $5.00. I have searched and not found anything like them. What do you all say?

The auction house is right, glass with the royal family on( unless ancient) is a pain to sell at the best of times, I have been selling Crystal for a long time, you will just have to love them for what they are, well made decorative pieces.
