Great Critter Plates

critter plates 8One of my first purchases when we moved to Germany was a set Lang Ebrach animal plates with artwork by Hans Arndt (above.) I found them at a yard sale and thought they were beautiful. I was told the set originally had four plates but I was okay with the broken set. After doing a bit of research I found out the fourth was a deer, it would be amazing to have all four but still love the three I have. Unless of course I would like to have dessert for four.

Well I found, when searching for my missing fourth plate, there are quite a few critter plates out there in all different styles, colors, and critters that will happily serve four.

    West Elm has a 4 piece snake plate for Halloween. Not such cuddly creatures, but there are 4.
