This is a set of china made by Krautheim and Adelberg of Bavaria, Germany

between the years of 1922 to 1945. The name on the bottom is the signature

of the hobby artist that hand painted the china. It was common for ladies to buy blank white china and paint it themselves. Studio artists signed within the art and hobby artists signed on the bottom. A service for 12 plus serving pieces of this painted German china has a value of $300 retail.

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.

to get good feedback for answering.

Yes, they were white china. This was common for people to do.

They must have been painted by your grandmother.
