This is my collection of children's silver pieces. Nursery rhyme themed are my very favorite.
I love that many nursery rhymes stem from historical or political events. Some were originally very sinister.
This sterling spoon and fork has a slightly devious looking cat, eating with a spoon and reads: Kitty Cat at Breakfast.
I have no idea what this means, I assume it is some nursery rhyme, or story - if anyone knows, please do tell!
The Three Little Pigs. The pigs are all playing instruments.
Spoon from the rhyme There Was an Old Woman Tossed up in A Basket. Part of the rhyme reads: Old Woman Whither So High? To Sweep the Cobwebs From the Sky.
Little Boy Blue Spoon.
Goosey Goosey Gander Spoon.
This is a Humpty Dumpty egg cup.
Little Bo Peep mug.
This one is hard to read, but it is also Little Bo Peep. It is a tin plate.
Little rabbit napkin ring. I'm not sure if this is from a nursery rhyme. Could be just a cute bunny - maybe Bunny Foo Foo?
And a Humpty Dumpty baby cup.
If you are interested in the history of a specific nursery rhyme, this is a pretty good website that tries to sort out their origins.
