This little guy could be used for so many things. He’s a tiny, little snail, just moving along the ground. You could easily make a rubber stamp out of him or even stickers. Use him multiple times to create a repeating border.
Gordon Browne (1858-1932) drew this vintage illustration which was included in National Rhymes of the Nursery.
