These are very old plates put out by the Salem China Company of Ohio. Although these particular bread and butter plates are unmarked, sleuthing has uncovered that the pattern is Old Gloucester. More pieces can be viewed at Replacements.com:

The pattern is very colonial and kitschy-cute. On the bread and butter plates, a pot of baked beans and a crock of mustard are depicted.

As expected for the age of these plates, there is a lot of crazing. The underside shows some wear/staining. There are no chips or cracks.

The shape of these bread and butter plates is referred to as "coupe." Basically, they have a slightly raised rim, making them a little bit like a low soup bowl.
