Sing a Song of Sixpence, Paper Quilt, (Paper, Ink &Thread) 10" x 12" (Mahogany Brown Wood Frame Measures 12" x 14")

From The Bedtime Stories Series: Blackbirds and other song birds were actually eaten as a delicacy in the English courts. However, a court jester may well have suggested to the court cook to bake a pie pastry crust and place this over some live blackbirds to surprise and amuse the King. It is interesting to note that the references to the counting house and eating honey were the common man’s perception of what a King and Queen spent their time doing. This action rhyme usually end with the tweaking of a child’s nose, perhaps as revenge for the blackbirds.
