This pattern was made from 1957 through 1975 when it was discontinued. In excellent condition your Noritake china set would value as follows:cup and saucer set 10 dollars, dinner plate 20 dollars, salad plate 6 dollars, bread and butter plate 5 dollars, fruit/dessert bowl 5 dollars, soup bowl 10 dollars, creamer 10 dollars, sugar bowl with lid 10 dollars, oval vegetable bowl 35 dollars, round vegetable bowl 30 dollars, oval serving platter 35 dollars, large oval serving platter 50 dollars, salt and pepper set 45 dollars, gravy boat with under plate 35 dollars.

When selling online, it is usually best to try and sell by the piece so that people can replace items in sets that they already have. I understand that it is too late for you to try that if you haven't already.

The best thing to do in your case is to find a local auction house and let them sell the set for you. In 14 to 45 days, they would send you a check for the sale price minus 10 to 20 percent commission. To find someone in your area, just Google "auctioneers in *your nearest large city*" and that will give you a good list of auctioneers.
