What is the approximate value of my 6-piece silver tea set.

Customer Question
What is the approximate...

What is the approximate value of my 6-piece silver tea set. It has a large tray, two pitchers, and four other pieces. The marks on the bottom are a moon, a swan, and a dragon (I think). The bottom also says "Hand Chased". The sugar bowl has the number 2752DM on the bottom.

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 important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

My mother received the set in 1943.
