The mark on your Royal Doulton jug and wash basin dates your set 1922-1927.
My research indicates that your set has a retail value of 470 AUD -
522 AUD assuming good condition.
If you wish to sell you can try one of the dealers on this list. Several are in Australia.
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 - no or small fees
Artfire.com
Goantiques.com - more upscale fee based
Rubylane.com - more upscale fee based
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.
