My Liberty Blue Price Guide
Although my website is dedicated mostly to antique glass, I also have dealt quite a bit with china and pottery items. One of my favorite patterns is Liberty Blue made in Staffordshire, England in the mid 1970’s to commemorate the US Bicentennial. Odd that England would be making china for the American market to commemorate its Independence from The British Crown.
I’ve never really found an accurate price guide to determine values of Liberty Blue pieces so I though I would list an average of the prices that I’ve gotten over the past 15 years, both on Ebay and in my space at the Ballston Spa Antique Center. You should keep in mind that these are prices realized in Upstate New York, and not meant to be considered “book” or “retail” values; they are simply the average prices realized, both in my shop and on Ebay.
As a general rule, I find the more common items to sell for less on ebay than they do in the shop. However, the more expensive items tend to bring a premium on ebay, especially if they are in the orig. boxes. Keep in mind that having the origjnal box can bring as much as 30% to 40% more, especially for rare items like the soup tureen. The most common Liberty Blue item I have found in the box is the cup and saucer.
Feel free to use this Liberty Blue guide that I’ve come up with but again, keep in mind that thorough research of current market trends needs to be done before you make a purchase as these are my estimates and opinion only.
