Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'll look into this right now.

Expert:  AppraiserJM replied 4 months ago.

I am unsure of how many pieces you have, but here are an idea of retail prices:

Cup and saucer set, $8-10
Dinner plate, $10-12

Bread and butter plate, $3-5

Small serving pieces, like a gravy boat, $30-35

Large serving pieces, $60-$80

These would be retail selling prices through a reputable vintage china dealer. As an individual, you'd likely be able to sell the set for 30% to 40% of the retail prices--the dropoff is pretty steep between what a dealer will get, and what an individual can get. You can also sell the set to a site like, again for around 30% to 40% of the retail prices they list.
