With the farewell of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in this past year (2017), circus collectibles and collectibles of Nabisco's Barnums Animals (animal crackers) will become more collectible.
This youth size 8" Plate and 5 1/2" Bowl are made of Melamine and were purchased in 2001. These are in Excellent, like new Condition.. The plate and bowl were made in celebration of the 100th birthday of the actual animal crackers produced by Nabisco. Nabisco's use of Barnum's circus animals for their animal crackers were in essence a win win for Nabisco as well as offering free advertisement for the Barnum & Bailey Circus to children.
The 2" deep cereal bowl features the Lion while the 8" plate offers a Lion, Tiger, Bear and a Bull. The all familiar Animal Crackers are featured on the rim.
