Little Miss Muffet Nursery Postcard

Part of the "National" series

KING, Jessie M.

Little Miss Muffet Nursery Postcard - ,

Miller and Lang, 1903.

An original Jessie M. King postcard. Colour lithograph with metallic pigment on card stock. The colourful image is printed on textured card to give it a moire silk look. 14 x 9cm. Printed in pinks, greens and yellows heightened with gold, the image depicts Little Miss Muffet in a billowing dress, with Jessie's trademark calligraphic lettering below, "Little Miss Muffet, Sat on her Tuffet, Eating her Curds and Whey." A very good example of this rare postcard. Some minor marking to the borders and stamp and greeting to the rear.

Keen to profit from the popularity of German postcards Glasgow printers Miller and Lang established the "National" series and commissioned Jessie King, as the foremost Scottish illustrator, to produce a series of six nursery rhyme watercolours. They were to be her first foray into full watercolour illustration. The endeavour proved costly and Miller and Lang did not repeat their commission. Due to their ephemeral nature the postcards are rarely encountered.
