You’ve seen the appraisers’ eyes light up on Antiques Roadshow when they are presented with an antique in its original box. That box in good shape means added value. Mike and Frank, our favorite American Pickers, fascinate us as they dig for treasures in abandoned barns and old sheds. If they find a treasure plus the original packaging, they see dollar signs......we hear the “magic” music and see the sparkly white lights as we experience their dream-like find!
I heard that same music and saw those sparkly lights when I discovered a Starter Set of Anchor Hocking Fire-King Turquoise Blue dinnerware in the original box. It was magic!!! Not only was the china in the original box/packaging, but the china looks like it has never been used.
Look at the vintage graphics …the mix of turquoise and brown
(and we think that combo is so 21st century).
The box looks new.
The china looks new.
Insert *magic music* here.
Have you found any treasures in original packaging?
