Thank you very much for your request. The first set of the Bettina Paris with Spring Ivory background including place settings for 12 with additional serving pieces would have a replacement value of(###) ###-####SD.The Bettina Paris coffee/tea service with white background would have a replacement value of 450-550USD. These values are for the china in excellent condition, any cracks, chips or discoloration would detract from the int age Rosenthal china. If yo were to attempt to resell the sets yourself, a fair market or resale value would be closer to 40-60% of the replacement values presented. I hope this information was helpful to you today.Best of luck with your vintage china sets.Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.Thank You,Frank Please let me know if you have any difficulties with our rating system.
