Paragon China Future Telling Side Plate by J. A. Robinson

Stock No. 470 

A very scarce 1920s Paragon China Future Telling side plate by J. A. Robinson decorated with a smiling little boy next to a little girl holding a flower (presumably picking of the petals one by one while reciting the rhyme on the plate). Around the edge of the plate are the numbers one through to twelve.
The legend on the plate reads "One I love, Two I love, Three I love I say, Four I love with all my heart, Five I cast away, Six, he loves, Seven, she loves, Eight both love, Nine he comes, Ten he tarries, Eleven he courts, Twelve he marries" - below which is the printed signature of the designer - J. A. Robinson
