Looks like the blue garland pattern.

Tea cups are selling (eBay SOLD prices--not asking) for 3.75 each for sets of four that is $14.99 each + shipping.

Bowls, if they are the 7 1/2 inch ones have SOLD prices of 7.49 each (also sold in sets of four). The one set was sold where the seller paid the shipping so you can cut that value in half since shipping is very costly.

The sugar bowl is selling (SOLD prices again) for $12.00 each.

The prices I am quoting are for pristine pieces with little to no wear. Even one chip or ding and any sign of wear will devalue them by at least $2 a piece.

If you are looking for a one and done way to sell them, I would ask if they are buying and get them to send you a quote sheet. If you like what they offer, you pack and ship (follow their instructions to the letter) and in a few weeks you get a check.

IF you don't want to mess with shipping, I suggest a local venue like a consignment store so you share the percentage of sale and have no hassles.

The prices I am giving you are considered re-sale retail...which you could try to fetch on eBay if you want to sell them yourself.

Any other method you will get less, but it is a much easier way to sell highly breakable items like these lovelies!

These sets are so pretty but nice china is not one of the sought after items right now so almost every brand is considered low value and very slow selling.
There are exceptions and occasionally - especially at this time of year - but as a general rule sellers may have to leave items like this up for sale for months and months and may never sell - at any price.

The younger crowd want microwavable, indestructible, almost Dollar Tree dishes that are cheap and easy to replace and not necessarily in matching pieces.

You can always check out your pattern at Replacements to get an idea of the retail store value, but generally, the average seller's price will be 40-50% less than the asking price at Replacements.

This set of 4 cups/4saucers recently sold on eBay for 15.00 plus shipping but these saucers look a lot like your 'small bowls'.

This listing sold for 9.99 plus shipping and it consists of 7 sets cups and saucers.

There are a lot of pieces listed on eBay (and a lot of other sites) so you can check the listing for similar pieces and place a watch on that listing to see if it sells.

The best place to find current value is the sold listings on eBay and since these change daily you can check often to see if your pieces are listed.

I believe your set - all together - would be worth about $20-$25 but it may not sells right away. Shipping is expensive and adds to the cost the buyer has to pay so all of that has to be considered.
Pieces are very fragile and difficult to ship safely so I would suggest listing your items on a more local site like Craigslist, LetGo, OfferUp, Facebook Groups/Marketplace so you can state 'local pick up only'.
This would eliminate the need to ship and may mean more money for your pieces.
You can always start your price higher and lower it if no one shows and interest.

The resale price of fine China has really declined in the past 10 years or so. Before it was a must-have item for all young brides and today people are no longer picking out China patterns when they get married. Because of this the prices, you can sell items like this for are around $15 to $30 tops.
