Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.
English china patterns with no names, only numbers to identify them, were usually discontinued by 1970s. About 1970 the china manufactuers realized that names were easier to remember and made for better advertising. My Aynsley china purchased in 1965 had only a number ID until ca1970.
This means the date that your china was discontinued was before 1975.
My research indicates that each of your unusually shaped dinner plates has a retail vintage store value of $80 assuming excellent condition.
As for where to sell.....If you want to sell quickly at wholesale prices, try one of these sites.
I do not know where you live so I will make suggestions for three countries.
In US:
Replacements.com
ChinaLane.com
ChinaFinders.com
ChinaReplacements.com
In UK:
ChinaSearch.co.uk
MatchingChina.co.uk
ChinaMatchers.co.uk
ReplaceYourPlates.co.uk
Australia: http://www.allthegalleries.com/dealers/porcelain.html
If you would like to sell closer to retail , some ideas are:
The internet has you largest audience of buyers. Place small ads on these sites or set up your own small store on these sites.
Etsy.com
Artfire.com
Goantiques.com
Rubylane.com
Tias.com
Amazon Marketplace: http://services.amazon.com/content/sell-on-amazon.htm/ref=footer_soa?ld=AZFSSOA
cyberattic.com
collectoronline.com
collect.com
trocadero.com
A private seller to a dealer can expect 40-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.
