I am sorry, having trouble with adding the pictures and "Thomas" is on the bottom of the pieces along with that enough to go on. It was gifted to me when my girlfriend died and her husband Thomas Worsham had those ordered for Debra back in the 70's I believe. That's all I know.

This is a set of china made by the Fritz Thomas Bavaria Porcelain Factory in Rosenthal (Bavaria) Germany. This mark was used from 1930 to 1950.

A set of Thomas Bavaria china in a service for 10 to 12 with a few extra serving pieces has a value of $400 to $500 for the set.

You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
