I have found the name on eBay where a person is trying to sell off 3 dessert bowls for $14.99. The name they list this under is called Homer Laughlin Eggshell Georgian FIELDCREST/KINGSTON. Here is a link to the listing on eBay for the dessert bowls. www.ebay.com/.../362976280792?hash=item54831280d8....

I am not sure what is exactly in your set and what I have found so far that is listed online is people breaking down the sets of china and selling them off in small lots such as 3 or 4 plates at a time.

Here is a creamer that is listed that they are asking $9.99 for www.ebay.com/.../254698020211?hash=item3b4d2f5d73....

You can try listing the set as is and tell people what is in the set for around $250-350. Or you can break down the set which will take longer to sell in small lots of 4 and see if you can sell it this way.

Thank you for finding this information, now that I know the pattern name I can research it further. Although I am not interested in selling since it has been passed down in my family, I was curious to know more about it.

This 1940's pattern - Homer Laughlin Eggshell Georgian Fieldcrest. This pattern is no longer in stock and only a few pieces online for sale.

All brands of china has flooded the market as so many people are downsizing and this has devalued even high-end china.

Market research estimated that over 90% of 'china' sales would be microwave and oven proof styles from now on (forever maybe).
This is sad but there are still people who have sets and plan to keep them so they will occasionally buy pieces to replace a broken item. They still want to pay 'yard sale' prices so with this in mind, I would say you may be able to list 2 plates at $20 plus correct shipping cost (careful! these break easy).

I have also found that a lot of people do not trust all of the online sites and will pay more money to buy from a 'company' that sells all kinds of china.

Your pattern: Kingston by Homer Laughlin - H46N5
This shows this china was made in August, 1946 at their Newell, West Virginia plant and the 5 is the number of the plant.
Homer Laughlin is one of the few companies that have clear production dates.

"Marks with date codes from mid-1932 to 1968 will have:
Made in USA
a single letter for the month (A=Jan, B=Feb, C=March, etc.)
a double digit number for the year (32=1932, 33-1933, 64=1964, 65=1965, etc)
an "N" for the Newell potteries in Newell, West Virginia
a 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8 for the specific plant number."

The pattern is Kingston by Homer Laughlin and some pieces can be found on Replacements but the value is very low.

Ruby Lane has a gravy bowl listed for just $20 so that shows the value is low as this is an item that usually sells for more money.

Etsy has 5 soup bowls listed for $12 - very low price.

Homer Laughlin used to name the shapes they used for their dinnerware, and the same shape was often used across different patterns (the decoration). According to my search, Georgian is the name of the shape of your dish. If you look at the link below, you will see many floral patterns using the Georgian shape. Unfortunately, this doesn't show your pattern. One distinctive feature of the Georgian shape is the narrow, embossed dot-dash edging around the plate.

It looks like your pattern is called Kingston Wheat. I just found a "Homer Laughlin Georgian Eggshell Kingston Wheat Oval Veggie Serving Dish w Lid" on eBay in that pattern. Here is the link:

This is nice to hear as these have been in your family for 74 years last August and most likely many nice pleasant memories they hold for many family members even if they do not remember the dishes that well.
Because of your decision, they may be around for many more generations where a few dollars gained would be gone in a short period of time.
