A 1950s Grand Tour - Libbey Style

A 1950s Grand Tour - Paris, London, Venice, the Taj Mahal, a bull fighter, a castle, and a camel.  What is not to love?  They remind me of the 1950s movies I watched on Saturday afternoons when I was growing up.  I love them so much I haven't found an occasion special enough to use them. 

A set of eight up was purchased at the local flea market for a few dollars.  I have not come across them else where (in person and online), which leads me to believe that the are not very common.
