Customer Question

I'm researching the value of a set of china bought in the mid fifties in Europe. Label on the bottom says Thomas at the top, then a shield with a flourished R in the middle, and Germany written underneath. Stamped numbers under that 03563 22. Ivory colored with gold trim, decorated with a phoenix-type bird and flowers. Thank you for your help.
