Sampson Smith of Longton, Staffs. produced pottery under his own name from 1851-1890 (or later) producing Staffordshire dogs, jugs and figurines.  From 1923-1941 he produced under the name of Wetley China 1923-1941.  The company then morphed into Old Royal.

I found this child's plate and shallow bowl today.  They carry the 1923-1930 mark and appear to be transfer printed.

I love them too but information has, so far, been very hard to find.  I did find a similar cup on Worthpoint but nothing else yet.

Wetley China is a new name to me and when I first started dealing in the 1980s it was factory produced wares from the 1920s and 1930s that I was interested in.

It is likely that the transfers were bought in and could well have been used by other factories.

They seem to be depicting Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross or The Grand old Duke of York, and Jack & Jill.

I never thought about the nursery rhymes but I think you're right on.
