Some of the transferware at the warehouse, currently listed on Etsy:
There are many things to love about English Transferware: Its history and origins. It is one of the greatest stories of mass production ever. Each piece has a hand-made quality and is in itself a piece of art. The transferware history is interwoven with famous authors, artists and historical figures and places. Beautiful designs and patterns were all engraved and hand produced. It's impossible for me to settle on just one thing that creates such passion.
This blog is devoted to English Transferware...learning about it, collecting it, decorating with it and using it. I strive not only to offer one of the largest and best vintage collections available online, but to also provide an informational and educational experience for others who share this passion. I hope to learn from my readers as well. Whether you're a novice who simply likes "red & white" china, a decorator who uses transferware in wall displays, or an avid collector like me who just HAS to find that rarest of platters in that rarest of patterns from the 1830’s, I hope that this sight proves to be an invaluable resource for you. Enjoy and come back often!
A homes poetry for the day:
To collect anything, no matter what, is a healthy human impulse of a man and boy, and the longer and harder the search, the greater the joy of acquisition.
