Both plates have the same design on the rim and scalloped edges. One plate measures 8 3/8 inches in diameter. The other one is 9 3/8 inches. Both have outdoor scenes and identical stamps on the back. I didn't see any chips or cracks. There are bumps and pits that look like manufacturing flaws and the smaller plate has crazing.
It belonged to my mother who worked in the antique business for many years. We don't know how she acquired them.
