Hi There~ My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question. At your convenience, please send photos. A full image with the design and a clear, in-focus close-up of the mark would be ideal. When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range. When evaluating an item, photos are essential to helping me come to a correct assessment. If there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos: http://ww2.justanswer.com/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here. Sincerely,Nora

Hello, In order for me to properly assess what you have, I will need to see images of the front and back mark on one of your pieces of china. Please let me know if you can provide photos. ~Nora

Hi,
Please tell how many pieces total. The set that you describe would sell for $300-500 at auction and Insurance value is $1000. If you want to add pieces to your set there are some on ebay and you can also go to Replacements.com, they have pieces in your patterns as well.
Thank you,
Wayne
