    I suggest you use the information you already have on the bottom of the objects, as well as googles image search feature and you’ll get a lot of the information you’re asking for. Also eBay sold prices will let you know the approximate values. Best use of this site is probably when you can’t identify something.

    You're fortunate in that all your pieces are well marked. A good suggestion above to go to eBay. Completed listings will provide you with those that have ended without being sold and those that have sold. That will give you an idea of both collector demand and value. Here, for instance, is Completed listings for Hammersley sugar & cream sets. And then compare what's on offer against Active listings. There are currently 134 which would lead one to think that there is a wide offering but most go unsold, even at modest prices, due to low collector interest. Of course, that's a general statement as there are lots of variables such as the pieces' age, pattern and condition.

    It would be helpful to know where in the world you are located, this is an international forum.
    As an American collector of vintage English china, they are pretty little things but I see nothing of significant value among the items shown, ie: nothing I personally would pay over $5-10 for, if even that. All appear mid-20th century-ish.
    JMHO, of course. :)

    Seconded. Another American here, and pieces like that in my neck of the woods are often donated to thrift stores because they just sat at an estate sale or tag sale.

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    The china market is very "depressed" value-wise these days. If you have a local online selling site or even FaceBook Marketplace that might be advantageous rather than ebay or the like. Shipping costs would likely be more than the items sell for.
