A delightful framed nursery print by Mabel Lucie Attwell, captioned: "What's the use of a PERFECT DAY if you can't have a PERFECT NIGHT!". Measures 12 3/4 inches wide by 9 7/8 inches high. Framed under glass with a white painted wooden frame. The print depicts two wee tots frightened by a small mouse sitting on their bedcovers. Printed in soft, delicate colors. Note: THIS ITEM WAS ISSUED IN PRINT FORM. IT IS NOT REMOVED FROM ONE OF ATTWELL'S BOOKS!REF., John Henty's book - "The Collectable World of Mabel Lucie Attwell" - in which he states that, from the first World War, MLA prints were produced for framing purposes. Many were adapted from existing postcard designs which is the case here. This print was adapted from Valentine & Sons postcard #666 issued in 1942. This item is in very good condition, although the wooden frame needs repainting and the paper backing should be replaced.
