Can anyone tell me what these items might be worth?

They measure 6 1/4 inches and have a gold anchor mark.

Thanks!!

    Gold anchor period (1756-1769)
    In this period, Chelsea Porcelain mainly followed the style of the French Sevres company. The gold anchor mark is the most forged Chelsea mark. As gold could not take the high temperatures in the kiln, the mark had to be applied on top of the glaze, which was a perfect mark for forgers as they did not have to mess around with the glaze.

    The influence of Sevres was very strong and French taste was in the ascendancy. The gold anchor period saw rich coloured grounds, lavish gilding and the nervous energy of the Rococo style.
    I had seen one Bird close to this sell about a year back at auction for 450.00. Hope this helps. Dave
