Hi,

Thank you for the request

This is your answer, please read entirely.
.
Tabititha Twichett, has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $140.00-155.00, Poorly Peter Rabbit

$120.00-125.00, Benjamin Bunny -$105.00-110.00 if sold at an auction(a local auction ) it would sell for a little less, if this were sold in a High End Antique Shop in a larger city it would sell for about 30% higher, depending on the condition. If I were selling it I would list it for Tabititha Twichett, has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $140.00 Poorly Peter Rabbit $120.00 Benjamin Bunny -$105.00

.
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. You can also sell on Charish, where you consign items. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
.
If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.
.
It was a pleasure working for you. I would be happy to help you with any items in the future.
.
When you post a new question, please feel free to add "FOR GLENDA" at the beginning of your question so as to ensure that I will be the one who answers your question for you. You can also try the 'REQUEST AN EXPERT' function OR you can add me as a 'FAVORITE' to your personal expert.

i sent a picture of the signature can you tell me who that is and if it has any significance on the value?

This has no added value, and this is not an official mark by the maker. This mark was added after the Company made this, it looks to be the date it was given as a gift, we see were a lot of people mark items they got as gifts or when they purchased them as memento's of a place they have been. Someone painted this on there. Here are their backstamps as they come from the company: https://www.boxofporcelain.com/Beatrix/Backstamps.htm
