Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Please tell me how many people your set serves.

Then, I need to know how many pieces each person has.

Finally, I need to know the serving pieces. These can add as much as 50% to a set.

I look forward to your replies.

Kind regards,

Doris

Olga,

I am unable to tell the following from just the photos.

You have a set that serves 12 people.

How many pieces does each person have?

Are these the only serving pieces you have? -

(from the photos)

Sugar

2 8" round vegetable bowl

4 size oval platters

and a covered vegetable dish.

Are there any more serving pieces.

Kind regards,

Doris

That's perfect.

Thank you.

Noritake Sri Lanka - (established 1972)

"With the Noritake Company Ltd in Japan as the parent company, Lanka porcelain Pvt Ltd commenced their operations in Sri Lanka in 1972. Representing the Noritake global family in Sri Lanka the company has evolved into Noritake Lanka Porcelain, a new giant in the porcelain industry, earning a reputation in an international market for standard and quality.
.......Noritake Lanka is confident and competent enough to guarantee the same quality that Noritake Japan has been maintaining through hundreds of years. It is a blend of superior technology and dedicated craftsmanship enriched by an enduring history."

Source: Noritake website

Your pattern - "Royal Hunt" was made at the Sri Lanka factory and was in production 1990-2005.

With that information, I was able to determine a retail store value of $2250 for your Noritake Lanka set assuming very good condition.

A private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of retail value.

I hope I have helped you.

If I can help you with further questions about this answer, please let me know before you rate me.

All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.

I endeavor to give realistic, honest answers in a timely manner.

Please take a little time to give me a POSITIVE RATING NOW SO THAT I AM CREDITED BY JA for my knowledge, time and effort.

Please do not rate me down because of system difficulty.

Please let me know if you have difficulty with the site's rating system. To rate me, you should see 5 stars near my answer. 5 stars gives me the best rating.

Kind regards.

Doris
