A picture would provide the best answers.
Pattern?? Probably;
Currier and Ives Blue by ROYAL (USA)
Description: Blue Scene Center & Scrolls, Multi-Motif
Pattern: Currier and Ives Blue by Royal (USA)
Status: Discontinued. Actual: 1950 - 1970

These are still very popular items but low value and since the for-sale volume is large, probably not a fast seller.

What type of plates do you have?
Royal Currier Ives Blue Old Grist Mill Dinner Plates?
Dinner plates - bread & butter plates - dessert plates?

"The Royal China Company was founded in 1934 during the Great Depression for the purpose of making inexpensive, decorated dishes that were sold in dime stores and given away as premiums at movie theaters, gas stations and in grocery stores. Royal's most popular pattern was Blue Willow until 1949, when the company introduced a charming new line of blue and white dinnerware based on the nostalgic prints of Currier and Ives. In all, there were 27 different images in the Currier and Ives pattern.


Produced by the Royal China Company of Sebring, Ohio, between 1949 and 1986. During its 37-year history, millions of pieces were made, and all of them were decorated with scenes by Currier and Ives. The most common color was called Imperial Blue, but it was also made in pink, green, brown, and gray.
The dishes were marketed extensively through grocery-store chains, and they could also be bought by redeeming S&H Green Stamps. Banks offered them as incentives to open new accounts, and they were even tucked away in soap boxes as freebies for a while. Sears Roebuck and Montgomery Ward sold the dishes by catalog, and they were also carried in a host of department stores across America. In the 1980s, during the last years of production, they were available at Kmart."
