We bought the set in the early 1970’s from a company on Van Nuys blvd called Unclaimed Freight, It came from back east out of a large home and shipped to Ca, but was never picked up.

Hi Ellen,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
While the set is worth slightly more as a whole, if you are interested in selling you may find people don't want who sets but rather individual pieces...for that reason I've priced things separately as well.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:
