Haviland & Co. Hand Painted "Mother Goose" Plate - image 1 of 7

The figure of Mother Goose is the imaginary author of a collection of French fairy tales and later of English nursery rhymes. As a character, she appeared in a song, the first stanza of which often functions now as a nursery rhyme.

This unique, one-of-a-kind, plate was painted by a talented artist in a home-studio environment, circa 1910. The center of the plate portrays "Mother Goose" hand feeding one of her geese in a serene outdoor setting. "Mother Goose" is adorned in yellow skirt and hat and black poke-a-dot rust colored top with wide white collar and shoes. She carries a delicate walking stick for added support. The wide border is decorated with black outline drawings of large and small geese in various sizes and poses.

The plate measures 8 1/2" across, blank #1 Ranson with gold trim and stamped in green "Haviland France", circa 1894-1931. There are cracks, chips or repairs; near mint.

A must have for "Mother Goose" collectors or as a one-of-a-kind piece for any porcelain collection.
