Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe character jug green - Lingard circa 1950

Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe character jug in a green colorway produced by Lingard, Webster & Company of Tunstall, England, circa 1950. "There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe" is a popular English language nursery rhyme. Debates over its meaning and origin have largely centered on attempts to match the old woman with historical female figures who have had large families. The most common version of the rhyme is: There was an old woman who lived in a shoe. She had so many children, she didn't know what to do. She gave them some broth without any bread; Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed. Consisting of a sugar bowl, creamer and teapot, this character jug is a part of an Old Woman tea service set.
