I picked up at auction last week a box of RW which included a Futura Colonnes teapot in new-looking condition (no crazing, chips, cracks, or signs of use.)
The “ask the experts” info on your site (which I adore) rates this pattern as both a desired collectible, and uncommon. I am unable to find a price range for it.
1. how does one establish a fair price?
2. what venues exist to sell an unusual piece– besides antique dealers and e-bay?
again, I am most grateful for any advice from the experts.
The Colonnes pattern was for only one year (1957), thus it is difficult to find today. As with most patterns the teapot is among the more highly sought pieces in the Colonnes
pattern. A Colonnes teapot in mint condition would be worth around $200 to a knowledgeable collector.
