The number 3057 is the pattern identification number for the

Sharon pattern made by Noritake China, a pattern that was first introduced in

1948 and discontinued in 1955. The design features one large pink rose in the center with

buds and leaves and is trimmed in gold. A service for 8 plus a few serving pieces in this pattern

has a value of $400, a service for 10 a value of $600 and a service for 12 a value of $800 to $1000; all with a few serving pieces.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are,,, Ebay and
You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
