Not sure what these little miniature plates are all about?? Or, how they were issued. This same company made the large size, numbered limited editions, exactly the same.. except they had the title of plate on the front (These mini plates do not). The large one of this was named "Peace on Earth" Little Angels are decorating a Christmas tree as their little woodland friends watch.
