Jack, Jill and John Nursery Mug

Poole Pottery nursery ware is a whole field of collecting into which I've not ventured until now . This mug dates from between 1934 and 37, the Nursery Rhymes series was designed by Dora Batty in 1921-22 and here Jack and Jill are painted by Marian Heath.  I do try not to be overly sentimental and also try to avoid chipped pots.  But there is something very sweet about named pottery and little John will be at least 74 years old by now.
