Driftwood Collection


I have an 8 piece place setting of Driftwood pattern.  Each place setting includes a dinner plate, a bread/salad plate, and cup and saucer.  I also have the platter and 4 serving pieces.  All pieces are in excellent condition except the smallest serving dish has a small chip on the rim.

I have included some pictures and would like to know how much it’s worth.

Thank you, Elisa

Answer: The following values for Driftwood items assume excellent undamaged condition.  Damage reduces the value by 25 to 75% or more depending on the extent and location of the damage.

Dinner plate:  $15-20

Bread and butter plate:  $5-10

Cup & saucer:  $10-15

Platter (13” or 15” sizes):  $20-30

I see three different sized bowls in one of the photos.  Without knowing the dimensions I cannot be sure of the sizes of these bowls. 

Here are the four bowls that were made, from largest to smallest. .

Nappy (vegetable bowl):  $20-25

Rim Soup:  $15-20

Cereal:  $10-15

Sauce/Fruit: $7-10

The white cups with this set are unusual but correct.  Driftwood hollow ware was initially offered only in white when the pattern was introduced in 1955.  In 1957 the more commonly seen turquoise hollow ware was introduced and white hollow ware was dropped.
