This is what I believe to be a luncheon or dessert plate set. The plates feature pictures of ethnic folk dancers with a red line trim around the edges. The bottoms of each plate are marked "Hand Painted - Made In Western Germany" with an inset stamp of more numbers. There are 4 plates that measure 8 3/8", and 4 plates measuring 6 1/4". There are no chips or cracks, and the quality of the pieces can be felt. There are 2 or 3 small flakes of the red trim that I have tried to picture. There is a small plate that matches 3 of the larger plates. The 4th set does not match each other, but is duplicates of the other three. This is a very nice set. Please email me with any questions.
