Adorable: vintage salad plates with hippos, Safari pattern by Seymour Mann. set of six china/porcelain plates. Marked on the bottom: "Safari. 1976. Mann." This is the hippo pattern in this cute china pattern: it included elephants, lions, and rams.

Vintage condition: no chips or cracks; some tiny wear marks on each plate on the white area, printed areas are fine (from cutlery, I assume); one plate has a small black mark above the hippo's back (pls. see photo 5); one plate has a sort of glob (manufacturing flaw) on front lower left side and one plate has this same flaw on back side; one plate has teeny glob on rim. These manufacturing flaws are really hard to photograph--they do not detract from appearance and are barely noticeable, in my opinion--but pls. convo if you'd like photos and I'll do my best. There is a remnant of a silver sticker on one plate on back. Each plate measures approx. 7 1/2 inches across.

These will ship Parcel Post with insurance and signature confirmation. They are, obviously, quite heavy (3 pounds 12 ounces all by themselves) and will be packed well to insure their safety in transit. Any overcharge that exceeds $1.00 will be refunded upon my return from the post office.

One of the cutest set of plates I've ever seen!
