This 2 piece set consists of a bowl and underplate, each with molded rim, the bowl of tapered cylindrical form with a chased and engraved scene of “Hark! Hark! The dogs do bark. The beggars are coming to town.” The dish chased and engraved with the scene of “Old mother Hubbard, she went to the cupboard.” Each piece with a shield shape reserve for monogramming. Diameter of Dish: 7 1/4 inches. Total Weight: 12 Troy ounces. Condition: Excellent: no discernable imperfections. This antique two piece child’s set is unusual in that it not only depicts two unrelated nursery rhymes, but each piece tells you in chased letters exactly which rhyme it is depicting. The scenes are realistically shown in perspective and are beautifully hand chased to bring out the three dimensionality of the design.
