I have seven. Bronze colored dishes with black pictures of mr. Pickwick beneath the mistletoe, the cricket match, astonishes job trotter, scenes from coaching days and coaching ways and tree without titles. Could you tell me if these are valuable?

Thank you for your request for information about transferware plates in the Historic New England collection. As a collecting institution, we cannot provide appraisal values for private collectors, I would recommend that you contact a local auction house or the Transferware Collectors Club would be a good resource for more information: www.transcollectorsclub.org
Best of luck with your research,
Sincerely, Nicole Chalfant
