My parents were given...

My parents were given a set of Rosenthal Helena china by a family friend who grew up in Germany. They have been in storage forever and I finally had some time to look into them. the Mark says SELB Germany, and they have a back 25. I know nothing of china.

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?

One saucer is broken, and it looks like one tea cup has lost its handle

This is a service for 12 plus serving pieces (some chips and damage) in Rosenthal China of Selb, Germany

on the Helena shape in pattern number 3656 made circa 1950. Rosenthal often put different patterns on named shapes. This service has a value of $400 to $500 resale on the secondary market.

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 five-star feedback for answers.
