As rare as it gets to find a set of these Royal Bayreuth nursery rhyme plates. They are C1920 and measure 7". They are vibrant and perfect, not to mention charming. There is Jack and Jill, Little Bo Peep, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Little Boy Blue. The mark on each plate is the Blue one. I am reluctant to break up the set since they are so difficult to come by. What a charming decoration hanging on the wall of a nursery, or just keep them for the child in you.
