Super nice and rare!
A Children's baby plate from a rare circa 1900 transfer pattern child's tea set known as the Santa Transportation Series.
This is one of the hardest pieces to find.
Marked on the reverse side "ROYAL BABY PLATE, Patented U.S. Feb. 7, 1905, Great Britain, France, Germany, Canada 1903. Made in U.S.A."
It does have some crazing, wear and a stain on one portion as shown, but no chips or cracks that I could find. Minor damage to the decal as shown.
Don't miss out on this piece. It will be the highlight of your children's Christmas tea set!
