This is a set of Salem China of Salem, Ohio

Polo Pony demitasse cups and saucers on the Aristocrat shape

made from 1920 to 1930. This pattern was never formerly named

but people refer to it as the Polo Pony pattern informally.

The center design of a jockey on the horse was available

on several different shapes (the three-cornered shape being the most popular), with and without the dots (see photo).

Each cup and saucer set in GOOD condition has a value of $45 per cup/saucer.

If there are chips or repairs, the set would be worth $20 to $25 per set.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com,
Ebay and letgo.com (local).

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

Please do click the stars now for this one, it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.

Okay, I am glad I did a second appraisal. The first one said $200-$225 a set. I guess that would be in excellent condition?

I appreciate the positive feedback!
