Rim border comprising square frames with low-relief pictogram-style representations of nursery rhymes, including a fiddling cat and moon-jumping cow (Hey, Diddle, Diddle) and blackbird pie and clothes-hanging maid (Sing a Song of Sixpence). A cerebral distillation of key symbols. Lots of room for engraving. Interior gilt-washed. Fully marked including date symbol and no. A112. Very good condition.
