This is a wonderful old ceramic divided nursery rhyme bowl that sits in a metal warmer. The pictures appear to be hand painted -- of Tommy Snooks and Bessy Brooks, Pease Porridge Hot, and Bonnie Lass. It is in terrific condition with crazing that is to be expected for its age. And yes - there are handles on each side-I'm a horrid photograher! It is 5 1/2" in diameter. A wonderful find!
