You have Johnson Brothers England Athena. Athena is the name of the pattern.
The backstamp (mark) was used in 1950-1959 (c.) www.search.staffspasttrack.org.uk/details.aspx?ResourceID=19543&ExhibitionID...
You didn't write how many pieces you have. For example the prize for a set of 3-4 Cup & Saucer is $26-30, teapot $42

It appears the mark you're displaying is the earlier mark that was used in the 1950's. The Athena pattern was made in the 50's through 1999 and several marks were used after this crown mark was discontinued.

Athena was the favored pattern bought by restaurants so you will see a lot of different marks that probably represent the dates produced as well as the primary sales target.
You will find many pieces listed online as 'ironstone' but it is true ironstone only if it has that printed on the back. Some pieces will have microwave safe listed also.
I do not know if all of your pieces have the same mark but in checking listings it is rare that all pieces will have the same marks which means each piece is from a different time period as well.

I'm not sure any of this makes any difference in use or value but it is different than any other pattern that I've researched.
Example:
This listing for 5 salad plates has 3 different marks:
www.etsy.com/.../set-of-5-vintage-johnson-brothers...

You can check out the sold listings on eBay to get an idea of true value and the low number of pieces that are actually selling.

I do not believe it would be a good idea to list as a set but maybe in groups of 4.

Timeless pattern!! I see the other posters identified it and gave you span of creation.

Are you an experienced reseller and if so, have you sold dishes before?

I am happy to help with hints and tips if you are not an experienced reseller and/or have not sold dishes before.

Selling whole sets is not as easy as you think and sadly in most cases you will not realize the retail values that places like Replacements.com get for them.

Post back if you need a few hints and tips!
