Nursery Rhymes is one of three series that John Moyr Smith did for Minton Hollins rather than Mintons China Works. Nursery Rhymes allow Moyr Smith great scope to give vent to his humour, something he certainly liked to do, here we have the Humpty Dumpty sitting on the wall and playing a guitar to a boy and girl.

Verso fully marked as usual for Minton Hollins.

Condition: Excellent
Price: £125 (approx $245)
Ref: 02348

Two very tiny chips on the top, a little roughness on the side edges, minor surface marks, a very clean and bright tile.

The image is a little oversize rather than cropped close to the edges so that the edges can easily be seen and any chips etc can be quickly spotted. Other marks described are usually not visible at all when the tile is viewed straight as one normally sees it and can only be seen with a critical eye when the tile is tilted to catch imperfections in reflected light. For more details of how we describe marks see Condition.

The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format. Customers may request a larger 120 dpi image also in maximum quality JPEG format for closer inspection which will be sent by email.
