This child's old feeding dish features the English nursery rhyme Tom, Tom the Piper’s Son. The decal in the center of the bowl has young children gathering around a boy sitting on a bench playing a flute. It reads; Tom, he was a piper’s son. He learned to play When he was young. This is also an A.B.C. plate with the alphabet in gold around the side of the dish. The back appears to be marked; T.P.C.O. Co. - 5 20 1 - Semi-Vit. I believe this is from the early 1900’s.
It’s a smaller that average bowl measuring about 6 ¼” in diameter at the top flaring out slightly to 6 ¾” in diameter at the bottom. I measures about 1 3/8” high. It is in nice condition with light scuff wear and stains but chips or cracks. The decal is in fairly good condition with light scuff and scratch wear.
