    Hello. I've recently come across this pretty extensive Crown Derby service which is being offered for sale privately for a modest €60. Since leaving the UK, I now focus my collecting efforts in other areas. However, I find the pattern quite attractive, but would be at a loss as to what to do with such a volume of pieces if I did decide to buy.
    One thing that did cross my mind, was to retain a few 'select' items, then possibly try to dispose the rest via an online auction, as there is limited demand for English porcelain in central Europe, where I now live.
    I'm aware that the market for such things has changed in recent years, but would be interested to know if such pieces - whether as a set, part set, or even as a cup and saucer or trio - have any commercial value anymore.

    Thanks for any help or advice !!!

    At a UK b&m decent auction that set is going to be £300-500, Derby is also favourable in the Far East, not so much in continental Europe.

    Did you check ebay sold listings? I believe the pattern is Kings, made over a long period, so older marks would be more desirable.

    I believe the mark you're showing is from 1897 if it helps.

    From Godden's book of marks.

    Bargain. That would still sell well in the UK.

    I would buy that (I'm in the US). The price is very good. I think you can make a profit on the serving pieces and get your money back quickly. I would be tempted to sell a "coffee/dessert service" with the coffee pot, cream/sugar and maybe about 6 cups/saucers and 6 dessert plates. If you do, be sure to put the term "Imari" in the title somewhere. RCD made a lot of Imari style patterns and they're hard to identify. Sometimes buyers just want this look and are not concerned with the specific pattern name. It's just a beautiful set!

    Lovely set and yes it does appear to be King's pattern. Certainly teapots, jugs and the slop bowl sell quite well here in NZ, and trios, but for some reason the plates - not so much. I tend to sell in sets as Ola402 suggested, if listed at the same time, a person could buy several sets if they wanted a larger grouping, but other's might be put off by one large set.
    Found a similar set - description of pieces below - sold at auction for USD$325:
