This is a set I sold on eBay a year and a half to two years ago. When I had purchased it, I thought I paid a lot for it. But, I thought it was a great investment, especially because it was a marked Fahrner set. When I needed some money I took it to a buyer. You know the ones you see in the paper saying the pay the highest prices for your art deco jewelry. Well I drove downtown with a number of antique gold and silver pieces including the above. He offered me $30.00 for the set. I had told him I had paid 10 times that for it. He said "Not my problem". I thought it was worth at least $500.00. No Deal. So reluctantly I put it on eBay starting bid $499.00. Within one day it had a bid. By the end of the week it was double that and then some. Needless to say I don't recommend selling to any reputable buyers without trying to figure out the value before selling. Do I regret selling it? Yes, a little.
