How much should a Butterfly handle cost???

How much should a Butterfly handle cost???
These sets are the highest “Valued”
and very popular to collect!!

Butterfly handles “duos” should be selling for $50.00 to $150.00
“Trios” $75.00 to $175.00
Creamer and Sugar sets with the Creamer having the butterfly handle should sell for $ 75.00
In good to excellent condition,
If the butterfly is damaged then I would not recommend purchasing it!
Depending on the pattern, “Un-Named” ones with no pattern in a
solid color should sell for least amount,
Then the “Un-Named Patterns”
then the “Named” patterns, should sell for the highest price
as the Named Versions are the hardest to find.

Back in the 1930s theses set only retailed for $10 to $15,
with the “Un-Named Versions” being the least expensive.

Now I have seen a few “one of a kind” “After Market” Handed painted
ones sell for over $200.00, but that’s still kind of high!
