Noritake Trilby

I was so excited to receive a long awaited package today. In 1973 I registered at Meier & Frank for our wedding. I picked out our china ... it seemed very expensive at the time and the pattern was discontinued soon after I picked it out but I loved it! Over the years I've had bits and pieces and nearly 6 place settings but no serving pieces or accessories. This summer as I was organizing the house I decided to start bidding on eBay to see if I could bring my collection up to 8 to 12 place settings.
Several weeks after winning the bid my package arrived today ... four 5-piece place settings and a large serving platter. It was so much fun to unwrap each piece... all in excellent condition. Makes me feel like having company!

I saw your post pertaining to the Joy of receiving more Trilby and had a question or two for you. I hope not to be a bother but I have a set of Trilby I am trying to part with. I am having a hard time determining worth in both effort and money as Ebay seems my only option. (So my ?s)
Are you interested in more pieces, serving or place settings?
What do you think is a reasonable price for a 6 piece place setting?
If you would respond to this I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT! Thanks
