You have a service for 12 plus serving pieces and tea set in Rosenthal's

1950's pattern named Form 2000, also called Classic Modern, designed

by Raymond Loewy and Richard Latham in 1954. This set has a current

value of $2000 retail, which is high for vintage porcelain right now with most

other 1950's sets selling for $500 on average.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are (local), (local) ,,,,, Ebay and (local).

You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
