1906 nursery series plate

Post by fuzzyedges on May 20th 2013, 11:45 am

Although it is chipped I am left with a few unanswered questions
It is a 1906 nursery series plate designed by J Ogden
There was 11 plates in the series
Q1 there appears to be Little jack Horner,Cry baby bunting,Little miss Tuffit and I think this one is The pied piper of Hamlin but whats the rest??
Q2 The inital after the d2504 number is I think the painter and it varies on diffrent plates I have seen AR ont net but I have no idea who they are or who painted this?
Q3 As information on the tin tin net seems very limited is this series hard to find ?? should I sell or try and find the other 10?

I expect you'll find the rest if you pick up a copy of a Victorian book of nursery rhymes. eg, Humpty Dumpty. Ole King Cole, The Grand Old Duke of York, Four and Twenty Blackbirds, Jack & Jill, Hey Diddle Diddle...
A few more here:

I doubt you'll find the decorators. There would have been quite a few, semi-skilled and working on a piece rate. A better route would be trying to find who drew the original pictures. They may have been commissioned, or come from a published book of nursery rhymes. Maybe a Royal Doulton archivist or museum or county library has the Royal Doulton archive.
As to whether or not to find the other 10, you can always put save a search on ebay in case more come up, or on one of the online auction websites such as liveauctioneers.

I thought of going through the nursery rhymes but there is more than 11
The designer was J Ogden but there is little out there on him
I was just hoping a Doulton fan was lurking that might know

Found this

J. Ogden Nursery Rhyme Plates series F. c1906.
Some of these twelve rare plates illustrated in Louise Irvines series three book are only shown as line drawings from Doulton's pattern books as only a few have come to light.
[eg 'Little Jack Horner' and 'Cry Baby Bunting']
J. Ogden was a painter & illustrator who was exhibiting in London in the early 1900's. His initials are on one plate.
The plates are 9" wide.

Baby Bunting plate. This plate features a very bold illustration of Baby Bunting’s father off to catch a rabbit and the baby in the background with the rabbit. There is a small facsimile signature for J Ogden near father’s boot. The series ware number is D2539 and there are initials written under the number which appear to be DL. The series was introduced in 1906 and withdrawn by 1930. This plate is from the Series Ware F on page 90-91 of Louise Irvine’ Series ware Book 5.

Seems they produced sets in a mix of coloured and monochrome transfer prints.

The word rare is not incourageing for collecting the missing 11 even so I may stick my hand in my pocket and buy a louise irving series three book to find out more
I am a Yorkshire lad and paying close to £8 for a book to look up a £1 plate seems awfully un religious

I had assumed the coloured ones were of a different series
It seems odd to do a flow blue then a colour version in the same series but who knows

Rare is great for collecting , its no fun if you can build a collection in a year or two , collections that are worth having take a life time or maybe as little as 10 years if you are lucky.imho.
