A child's three piece nursery ware set consisting of a plate, bowl, and cup. Each piece is signed by the artist on the base with incised initials NHC (conjoined). This is a hand-thrown pottery set decorated with underglaze handpainted designs of little yellow ducks. The plate features a Mama duck and three ducklings; the bowl - two ducklings; and the cup one duckling. Green grass and rows of flowers complete the design. The plate (only) has light crazing and there are no chips, cracks or hairlines. The plate measures 7 1/4 inches in diameter. The bowl is 4 inches in diameter by 1 5/8 inches in height. The cup measures 1 1/2 inches in height. The bases are unglazed. A most charming and delightful nursery set.
