is "fine china" brand china valuable or worth anything? thats the actual brand name.?

I was given a set from aln alderly couple giving all their things away before they go to a nursing home. Apparently half of this stuff came from holland when they immigrated, back when people were immigrating from holland to places not in europe. need i say more.

Anyway, they never said or remembered what came from where but, so far the only thing with a brand name is this tea set which says fine china on it, its got those gold leafed edges on it, its definitely china at least, but i cant find any information about the brand name "fine china"

im pretty sure its not just written on there to say that that is what it is, as opposed to bone china.

    Porcelain (/ˈpɔːrsəlɪn/) is a ceramic material made by heating materials, generally including kaolin, in a kiln to temperatures between 1,200 and 1,400 °C (2,200 and 2,600 °F). The toughness, strength, and translucence of porcelain, relative to other types of pottery, arises mainly from vitrification and the formation of the mineral mullite within the body at these high temperatures. Though definitions vary, porcelain can be divided into three main categories: hard-paste, soft-paste and bone china. The category that an object belongs to depends on the composition of the paste used to make the body of the porcelain object and the firing conditions.
