This is a set of majolica tin-glazed earthenware saucers

made from 1960 to 1980 by an artisan pottery in Sao Paulo, Brazil,

exact maker unknown, with a value of $15 per saucer.

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 (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.
