Thank you for contacting Mearto for your appraisal inquiry. Based on the photographs and description provided, this is a set of Noritake porcelain in the “Alvin” pattern. Based on the backmark, this set can be dated to no earlier than 1933, as that was the first year that this particular backmark was used by Noritake. Based on the owner’s description of the set being in excellent condition and having no missing pieces, cracks or chips, the Fair Market Value of the complete set is between $100 and $200 as guided by recent auction sales of this pattern. Unfortunately, the market for a complete set of early to mid-century china by this maker is depressed at present.
