Second opinion] I am...

Second opinion] I am interested in finding pieces for a set of china dishes I purchased . On the back it says Grosvenor Bone China England " NINGPO" Herbert S Mills Hamilton .

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I bought the set from a thrift shop in Lion's Head ON .

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

The set is white with a picture of a blue bird in blue a tree . The tree has two trucks coming from a blue pot which has a dragon on it . The dishes have gold edging & blue blossoms inside the rim .
