Hello, I have found this to be an artist - Richard Tuck. He is known for his fine ceramics and does many forms, functional, decorative and wall art. Here is his website http://rtuck.com/about/about-the-artist.html I see you have 8 cups and then the large canister with cork seal. There is damage to the vessel I would say the value on the set as a whole would be 450-500.00 If I may be of further service please let me know.
