16 cup & saucer sets
16 salad plates
16 bread/butter plates(?)
16 bowls
2 round serving bowls

Hi! I hope you're doing well.

I'll be glad to take a look.

Hi.

.

This set was made by Gold Standard. They were a Japanese based dinnerware company around the 1960s. They weren't around long and were one of the many companies that sort of came and went in Japan following WWII. Very few patterns have actual names and most just have number codes that have been given to their patterns by replacement sites. Most sites call your pattern GST1. It's a scalloped pattern that features pink flowers and gray scrolls.

.

Here's a breakdown of your pieces:

.

16 dinner plates - $10 to $15 each
16 cup & saucer sets - $8 to $12 each
16 salad plates - $5 to $10 each
16 bread/butter plates - Those should be bread/butters. - $4 to $8 each
16 bowls - - Likely soup bowls - $10 to $15 each
2 round serving bowls - $30 to $45 each
1 oblong serving bowl - $20 to $30
1 soup tureen - $45 to $60
1 gravy boat - $25 to $35
1 sugar bowl - $20 to $25
1 creamer - $15 to $20
& what appear to be 4 tiny plates of some type - I think those are the coasters. Those are worth about $4 to $8 each

.

As a set, it should be worth about $650 to $850

.

You'll get more by breaking the set up, but you'll likely either wind up stuck with a few pieces or it will take much longer to sell. Like with your other set, I wanted to make sure you knew the value both ways so you could decide for yourself. I
