Hey Diddle Diddle


A beautiful pair of nursery reprints embracing a traditional nursery rhyme with a decorative twist. Directly based on a 19th century series of Hey Diddle Diddle engravings in our private collection. One scene pictures the cat and the fiddle, along with the cow and other animals dancing under the moon. While the other illustration portrays the anthropomorphised dish running away with the spoon across a chequered floor. 

Each print is set in a decorative 'chequered-corner' mount (with a terracotta or dusky blue accent) and hand framed in gold-leaf beaded mouldings. 

This series would be wonderful hung in a child's bedroom or playroom or given as a unique Birthday or Christening present. Available as a pair or singles and glazed with Artglass. 

All our reproduction collections are limited in number, glazed with Artglass and originate from antiques specially sourced by Petri Prints.
