New 1/1 Nursery Rhyme Vase

New 1/1 Nursery Rhyme Vase

NEW Nursery Rhyme Vase
Nursery rhyme, verse customarily told or sung to small children. The oral tradition of nursery rhymes is ancient, but new verses have steadily entered the stream. A French poem numbering the days of the month, similar to “Thirty days hath September,” was recorded in the 13th century; but such latecomers as “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” (by Ann and Jane Taylor; pub. 1806) and “Mary Had a Little Lamb” (by Sarah Josepha Hale; pub. 1830) seem to be just as firmly established in the repertoire.
Some of the oldest rhymes are probably those accompanying babies’ games, such as “Handy, dandy, prickly, pandy, which hand will you have? and for the riddle-rhyme “Humpty-Dumpty” suggests the possibility that these rhymes come down from very ancient sources, since direct translation is unlikely.
Elizabeth Todd translation of these nursery rhymes from paper to paintbrush on the holt vase shape is testament to her incredible skill as she seamlessly intertwines each different rhyme around this one off vase measuring 90mm High. This is destined to be launched in our next 1/1 brochure but I couldn’t wait to show you this whimsical piece of art. R.R.P £545 Featuring Humpty Dumpty, the Owl and the Pussy Cat, Little Miss Muffet and Hey Diddle Diddle the cat & the Fiddle
