Mother Goose Platters
Denslow's Mother Goose was such a success, it even inspired a few dishes. The Haynes Pottery Company, of Baltimore Maryland created a pair of large plates and apparently a pitcher as well. I've never seen even a picture of the pitcher, but have a pair of the plates.
I'm very curious as to what image was used for the pitcher...maybe Jack & Jill?
I've also wondered if there were more pieces to the set. I've seen other Haynes Pottery pieces that use the same basic plates with the same borders, but have scenes from Dickens novels ( supposedly after C. D. Gibson, but they certainly don't look like it), or heads of Native Americans. Obviously, there were several series of these plates.
