I have a tea set... cups, saucers and plates with milk jug

This answer was rated:

I have a tea set... cups, saucers and plates with milk jug and sugar bowl which is Salisbury fine bone china but I cannot find another like it on the internet an am trying to age and value it I wonder if you could help?
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Does the tea set have unique or identifying markings?
Customer: I have photos... It has a number on the bottom of the tea cups 8340 or 834 with 0 underneath it. It appears to be quite old
JA: What condition is the tea set in?
Customer: It's in good condition, just the usual wear on the gold at the edges which would be expected for the age I believe it is
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: Not really... I have some good photos of it
