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.
