I have two antique large tea sets one blue and white

Customer Question

Hello, I have two antique large tea sets one blue and white Stafford china with windmills on, the other a very fine Japanese tea set with a typical Japanese design. Please could you give me an idea if these might be of any value? Thank you
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes it's turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: Can I send photographs?

This is the Japanese tea set. It belonged to my grandmother she brought it back from India in 1932. The diameter of the cups is 10cm and 14cm for a saucer. It is in good condition with no chips or cracks. The is very fine and translucent.

Is £16 for the whole tea set or for one cup and saucer? I've sent lots of pictures including the mark on the bottom
Expert:  Rarewares replied 8 months ago.

I only got one overhead photo. When you batch upload, only one comes through.

The l16 is the phone call price, I dont do those.
