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.
Please know that I cannot accept any requests for "live conversations" such as phone calls.I give my best answers in writing when I have time to think about them.Sometimes a "Chat box" will pop-up asking if you would like a live conversation. Please know it is not from me.
Am I correct in assuming that you are asking for value? Anything else?
The box and set look Japanese to me.
Why do you think it is Chinese?
Thank you for the information and photos
Please allow me time to research the data required by your question, calculate current values and write my answer.
I should be back within 40 minutes.
I thank you in advance for your patience.
In the antiques world, an item is not an "antique" unless it is over 100 years old.
Your 1975 set is considered "vintage" as it is only 41 years old.
As a vintage, hand painted, 10 piece, boxed Chinese tea set, it has a retail value of $110-130 assuming good condition.
The peach blossom is traditionally a sign of good luck to the Chinese.
If you would like to sell your set, the internet gives you the largest pool of buyers.
Online auctions such as eBay usually result in values lower than retail.
Try the site etsy.com. It charges only 20 cents to list and 3.5% of the final sale.
A private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.
