Thanks for the list!
The Burbank pattern is no longer being produced by Meito.
If all your pieces are in perfect condition, the current retail (replacement or insurance) value of your set is approximately $7100. If you were to sell it, you could expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of 40% of the retail amount, or approximately $285, depending on location and actual condition.
