GENERAL INFORMATION. In 1949 Prescott Baston designed three nursery rhymes for "in the round." They were planned to be placed on music boxes where they would rotate while a tune would play. The plan never worked with the music box supplier and Baston sold them as popular figurines for over 30 years.
In this remarkable child's figurine, we see a cat and a fiddle and a cow, unsuccessfully attempting to jump over the moon. The little dog is laughing to see such sport and the dish is running away with the spoon.
