Vintage 1870s white dish with image of a fish skeleton. We're in the process of illustrating the poem "Who Killed Cock Robin" with our own images - this will be an entire series of 13 plates when complete. Plate measures 7.75" x 5" - this plate is heavy duty ceramic made for industrial use and has seen at least 100 years. The New Jersey factory these ceramic dishes were made at had ceased production by 1909.

The nursery rhyme Who Killed Cock Robin is pretty dark and chronicles the rituals and events following the death of cock robin at the hands (arrows) of the sparrow. The earliest version appeared in 1774 and is believed to reference seasonal sacrifices of king figures in early Pagan and Norse mythology.

Plates look brilliant hanging grouped on a wall or on plate stands as unique accent pieces. See image 4 and 5 for a group photo

Although our altered china pieces are made for display only, they can be cleaned with a gentle cloth and soap and water. These decorative art pieces are made using salvaged vintage and antique china that has been updated with a new and slightly more sinister look over Granny's traditional china.

Created by Chase & Scout for Austin Modern using a high heat transfer and kiln glaze technique to seal images onto the plates. Plates are hand washable and should be treated with care. Chase and Scout is the custom studio of Austin Modern Vintage.
