Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. There were no photos of the piece/set that came with your original inquiry.
Add pictures of the pattern and the maker's mark on the bottom of one piece by using the +Add File feature.

Ask Your Own Antiques Question

I do not participate in the phone service.

I got the photo of the back mark, so whatever you did just do that again to show me the pattern.

A service for 8 plus some serving pieces of Edwin Knowles china of West Virginia

made in 1944 has a value of $200 to $300 for the whole set.

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.
