They are mainly white with a blue neck band decorated with flowers.  they are marked underneath with the mark of crown and 2 balls with England at the bottom and the name "Keith" above. are these worth putting in auction?

Thank you for your reply. There are 2 tureens, 1 milk jug, 2 serving plates and 6 dinner plates.

Thanks for the pictures and the additional information, Brian.

Your dishes were made by Pearl Pottery of Hanley, Staffordshire, circa 1912. They are earthenware, as opposed to china.

If all your pieces are in perfect condition, the current fair market (private sale or auction) value of these dishes is approximately GBP 170.

I hope this answer has been helpful to you, Brian.
