Welcome. Thank you for requesting me.

Please send me at least two photos.

At least one of the two pieces together.

A good, clear one (s) of the marks.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.

If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the mark and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "attach" or "add" link or paper clip you see on your reply page.

If none is there, then you may use the free internet photo site
imgur.com Use the following instructions:

Go to http://www.imgur.com

a. Click "Computer"
b. Find the photo file on your computer that you want to send
c. Click open on the file
d. You will see a Start Upload link on the imgur.com page.
Click on it
e. Your image will appear on the screen
f. Highlight and copy the address link under Direct Link
to the right on the imgur page
g. Paste that link into your reply box on Just Answer

Kind regards,

Doris

Thank you for all the information.

Please allow me time to research your question, calculate current values and write my answer.

The marks on your set are the decorator's logo mostly used on capodimonte (*with small 'c,'") reproductions.

They date your set ca 1970s-1990s.

My research indicates that the retail vintage store value range of your set is $700-800 assuming very good condition but also depending on venue. The higher value would be in a larger city.

A private seller to a dealer can expect 40-60% of retail value.

I hope I have helped you.

If I can help you with further questions about this answer, please let me know before you rate me.

All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.

I endeavor to give realistic, honest answers in a timely manner.

If you would like to work with me on future questions, I would be pleased to work with you.
All you have to do is put my name (Doris) at the beginning of your question.

Please take a little time to give me a POSITIVE RATING now so that I am compensated by JA for my time and effort. This is of no cost to you.

Please do not rate me down because of system difficulty, site charges or current appraisal values - all three are beyond my control.

Please let me know if you have difficulty with the site's rating system.

Kind regards.
