Why is it so hard for me to find any information online about it? What is the company and pattern name? Also are they worth anything
Expert:  Nora replied 6 months ago.
Hi, The company maker name is Nasco. Although the internet has a vast amount of information, it is not yet a repository for all information. Not finding a pattern match is not uncommon. Many of their patterns were not named and they have been assigned number codes by companies who handle china replacements. You can send images of this in to replacements.com to ask for a pattern name or if they have assigned on to this. It is free to do so, and here is a link for you to that part of their site: http://www.replacements.com/identify.htm Please take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars.

Are they worth anything?
Expert:  Nora replied 6 months ago.
Hi, In general, fine dining china sets are flat on the market currently and that is because less people entertain at home using vintage or antique china at every meal. On today's market, sets from Japan from this era with approximately 45 pieces sell for an average high of $100. Please take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars.
