Vintage tea set, design is White Camelia.

We have a 21 piece tea set left to us by my great grand father. It has Staffordshire details on the base and the design is a white Camelia flower sprig. The pieces all have fine gold line on the edge and the edges are slightly wavy. It is very fine bone china. There is a square sandwich or bread plate (approx. 7" square) with embossed pattern on each corner, a milk jug (about half pint)and a sugar bowl, 6 cups, 6 saucers and 6 tea plates. We know it was bought about 1925 ish, as a wedding anniversary gift, we don't know any more about it. I have tried in vain to find info to try to get some sort of value on it, I want to give it to my daughter & I would like her to get it adequately insured. Any help would be most appreciated.
