Arcopal was established in 1958 under the Arch Holding company which also managed other glass and ceramic companies. It was mass produced for the middle market with a wide range of tableware. Your set is part of the Trianon pattern but in green which is unusual. Ceramic sets such as these don't do well at auction so I would suggest an online sell platform like ebay or etsy with a guide price of £50.  Arcopal is not really a household name so if you do list try putting a popular search word like antique or retro and vintage in the title. I must admit I don't like the use of these two words it is a common search for buyers!

If you have any further questions do let me know.

Thank you.
