I have 7 pieces of Belleek china which my sister had

Customer Question
I have 7 pieces...

I have 7 pieces of Belleek china which my sister had acquired over the years. She passed away 4 weeks ago, and I would like to know what the value of the pieces is, and if you know of anyone who might want to purchase them. the pieces include:

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

The pieces are in pristine condition. the largest is a heart shaped bowl with a scalloped edge, inside is pictured a pair of hands holding a heart with a crown. one is a teacup with No 0857 and has ten shamrocks on it, five on each side of the handle which is colored as part of the plant. There ae two (a larger and smaller) vases, octagonal in shape and looking as if sea shells, There is a small bowl with 18 "points" on the edge, also numbered 0857. there are two small pitches (creamers?), one with the #0857 (the larger), and the other without any other than the usual Belleek marks. I have no idea how old they are.
