Household Institute Priscilla pattern tea pot
I am having a garage sale and came across my old tea pot. It has the markings on the bottom of Household Institute. I did see they have websites for replacements. I don't want to sell it at the garage sale, but am wondering if when I take it to an antique dealer, should I accept a lower price then the replacement price
Homer Laughlin produced Household Institute china in the Priscilla pattern on three distinct blanks each with different values. The pieces found on replacements.com are in as perfect a condition that you will find and are priced very high. A google search shows several selling in the 50 to 90 dollar range. A dealer is not going to give you anywhere near replacements cost and I would think that the 50 dollars is probably more than a dealer would offer.
Great Information. Thanks!
I have a Household Institute Priscilla teapot also that was my Mom & Dad's. My Dad loved going to auctions and I think he got it from there. How can I find out how old my teapot is? There are letters stamped on my that look like I 44 N 6. Just curious about this beautiful teapot.
The date code numbers on your piece correspond to the month year plant and building number so I 44 N 6 = September - 1944 - Newell VA - Building 6
hope this helps
Hi, I've looked all over the internet trying to find a priscilla teapot like mine and they don't look like mine at all. Mine is stamped A 50 N 6, so I can date it. I've seen one round priscilla and one scalloped priscilla. Mine looks most like the scalloped priscilla except all the flowers on mine are pink, not multi colored. Can you give me more information on the different styles?
Thank you so very much Bob! How interesting. I appreciate you taking the time to write.
