The set is lovely, it is also incomplete. In my area this is not in demand anymore, especially china with a metallic rim. Replacements will buy it, but for less than they sell it for.

This pattern is still fairly popular in eBay land and fetches about 49.00 a place setting.

Here are SOLD auction examples with some of the serving pieces:

Are you an expererienced eBay seller? If so that is your best bet. You will need to package these like they are going off to war, double boxing, heavy bubble wrap and Styrofoam peanuts.

If you have never packed china before there are YouTube videos to show you how to package breakables.

If you are not an experienced seller, you can advertise these locally in a Facebook Sale Want Trade group or other local sales venue--NextDoor, LetGo etc.

In those venues you will probably NOT get eBay prices so don't be surprised how little people will offer you.

You can see if Replacements.com will buy them from you--but that involves shipping and with shipping costs you may not make a profit.

If you have consignment stores that will sell them for you, that would be the easiest, but you would get the least for them.

There is kind of a food chain for selling with eBay getting you the most, on down to consignment.

Each has different amount of work which is why the prices go down.

Also you will probably want to try different strategies when selling--start with the whole set (if you are doing local sales) then if no bites, you may have to sell it by place setting, then by piece. If you are doing it by eBay, parse it out by place setting, then if no nibbles by piece.

Post back what you decide and how your sales go!
