Last week I posted HERE about the figural pieces of transferware in my shop and tonight I thought I'd do a quick post and show some of the ones I have in my collection that are displayed in vignettes around my kicthen.
Next to the stove I have a large dairy cheese slab (you can read about these pieces HERE) which holds a couple of transferware pitchers filled with utensils, a jar of olive oil that we cook with regularly, salt and pepper shakers and a nice, plump little piggy. The piggy doesn't really serve a purpose other than to look cute and make me want bacon. It's actually a piggy bank. I've got two of these and am currently trying to decide which one to sell. They are so darn cute though that it's hard to decide! One is an advertising piece for Harrod's and is printed in green.
Over in the corner, next to the sink I have my rooster pitcher, nesting hen egg basket and a chicken creamer. I've layered two trays behind these pieces; a very large handled wicker and iron tray and inside of it sets an antique hand painted tole tray. I love this little vignette and it's one of the first things I see when I walk in the kitchen.
An another counter top is this cute cow creamer Cow creamers are really popular pieces and make fun collections in and of themselves as there are so many different ones. I call this the laughing cow.
It is displayed along with a huge Spode platter, a Masons Vista jug and my latest addition to my advertising collection, a huge, antique 1 gallon size Marmalade crock (I am going to be listing one of these in my shop soon)!
Hope you all enjoyed these kitchen vignette photos.
It's 9:00 and I'm finishing up for the day with a piece of banana cake I made this afternoon. I'll share the recipe soon.
Have a nice night!
