Selling on Ebay is a good idea, but it is important to educate yourself first. You can log onto Ebay and search for pieces identical to yours. Check the completed auctions to see what they are currently selling for. You can also use Google to search sales results for each item. There are also sites that feature price guides - I know there's one for Roseville pottery.
You may want to subscribe to a service like Worthpoint.com, which publishes auction results and which will charge you by the month, so you can research your things and cancel when you're done.
Once you know the auction (not retail ) value of your items, photograph and list each one, either as an auction or as a fixed price sale, on Ebay.
You could also avoid Ebay's fees and shipping your items by selling locally. You can list them on craigslist.com (free) or in your local paper. You could post a notice on the bulletin board in your local supermarket or in the art department at a local college.
If none of that works for you, there's always a local auction house.
