Child's 6 3/4" cereal or oatmeal bowl.
  There is a double band of green around the 3/4" rim showing signs of wear in two places. The illustration in the bowl is of three nursery characters; Neddy the Donkey, Pimple the Clown, and a puppy dog in a blue dress carrying water pails. The accompanying rhyme reads: " Pimple for a trick/ Was having a ride/ Neddy with a kick/ Flung him far and wide".

The underside of the base of the bowl is stamped "BCM/ Nelson Ware Made in England".
