NURSERY RHYMES
GOOSEY GOOSEY GANDER

BROWNHILLS POTTERY CO

Staffordshire England

c. 1880

This 6 1/2 " plate has a crisp image transfer printed in rich dark chocolate brown with great three color polychrome hand painting, clobbering in shades of green, brown and cobalt blue.

The image is part of the Nursery Tales series coveted by collectors. This transfer, rarely seen on the market, will be a special abc plate in your collection.

In addition to the entire ABC alphabet transfer with the classic Brownhills decorative transfer, this plate has a central cartouche of a young girl meeting a Goose. The Old English nursery rhyme:

Goosey Goosey Gander, Whither shall I wander?

Upstairs and downstairs. And in my Lady's chamber.

There I met an old man. Who wouldn't say his prayers,

So I took him by his left leg. And threw him down the stairs.

Condition is EXCELLENT, clean shiny and bright.

Plates like these were given as gifts to children on special occasions and were used as educational tools, as well. A lovely addition to your ABC collection.
