Vintage "Nursery Bottle" Beeswax Candle
The 100 year old Nursery Bottle!
Pure Beeswax Candle handmade here at the good garden.
Moulded from an Antique Nursery Bottle (1908-1920) by the Dominion Glass Company in Canada.
This unique candle features the children's nursery rhyme "Ding Dong Bell Pussy's In The Well" coupled with a scene from the nursery rhyme on the front.
Pussy’s in the well.
Who put her in?
Little Johnny Flynn.
Who pulled her out?
Little Tommy Stout.
What a naughty boy was that,
To try to drown poor pussy cat,
Who never did him any harm,
But ate all of the mice in the farmer's barn.
The earliest recorded reference to the rhyme is from John Lant, the organist of Winchester Cathedral in 1580, who recorded the following rhyme:
Jacke boy, ho boy newes,
The cat is in the well,
Let us ring now for her Knell,
Ding dong ding dong Bell.
It was printed in Thomas Ravenscroft's Pammelia, Musicks Miscellanie in 1609, as a canon for four voices
