Hi Jodie,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
This is a dessert service and probably would have originally had tea and coffee pots, a cream pitcher, sugar bowl, waste bowl (for used tea leaves) and a larger platter for cake, cookies etc.
Most existing dessert services range in price from $1-10 per piece, with the higher prices paid for the larger sets. Your set is pretty small (and you have a mismatched number of cups and saucers) but the landscape decoration is quite wonderful and comparatively rare, so the pieces in this set are worth about $4-6 each.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

An antique 29-piece Noritake hand-painted porcelain dessert set
unattributed landscape pattern, made in Japan, bearing the "Komaru" backstamp in use from 1908, comprising:
11 cups (with windmill scene)
12 saucers (with sunset/tropical? scene)
6 dessert plates (with haystack and reapers scene)
CONDITION: appear to be in good condition commensurate with age and use.
PROVENANCE: inherited
$ 125-175 for the set*
