Nursery rhyme plates have been very popular since the mid-1800's and were produced by many companies during the last part of the nineteenth century. This wonderful Staffordshire child's plate, circa 1888, is from the hey diddle diddle nursery rhyme. Originally part of a complete miniature children's breakfast or dinner set, the plate measures 6 7/8" across and the transfer is a rich country red. The central of the plate depicts the nursery rhyme characters and surrounding the plate is the rhyme "HEY DIDDLE DIDDLE THE CAT AND THE FIDDLE THE COW JUMPED OVER THE MOON THE LITTLE DOG LAUGHED TO SEE SUCH CRAFT AND THE DISH RAN AWAY WITH THE SPOON".

The plate was made in Hanley in the Staffordshire region of England by Whitaker and Co. (1886-1892) as part of its nursery rhymes series. The plate carriers the "W & Co" mark and the registration number 103739, indicating 1888. The image on the plate was taken from a children's book titled 'Favourite Rhymes for the Nursery' published in London by Thomas Nelson in 1870. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; some mild age-related darkening which adds to it's character.
