5 piece place setting, service . Vintage Asian Turquoise…

Customer Question
5 piece place setting, service...
5 piece place setting, service for 12. Vintage Asian Turquoise Mun Shou Longevity pattern. My first question is...Is it valuable? Mu Grandmother was one of the first Americans to visit China when they opened the borders. I believe this set was purchased there and shipped home. I am unable to find any place settings online. Only teapots, rice bowls and spoons.
Second question...What is the best way to sell this set?

Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
At your convenience, please send photos. A full image with the design and a clear, in-focus close-up of the mark would be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
When evaluating an item, photos are essential to helping me come to a correct assessment.
There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:
http://ww2.justanswer.com/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert
I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.
Sincerely,
Nora
