Adding to My Collection
Wherever I go, I’m always on the lookout for teacups. I am also quite fond of the color red! Transferware has become a passion. I love the romance of Transferware. It is no surprise then that I’m fond of collecting Red Transferware.
Collecting Red Transferware
I am quite fond of Transferware and Chintz…
Strolling along the path at The Country Living Fair I was almost overwhelmed with all of the wonderful items displayed. Almost. I spent most of the first day thoroughly enjoying my sister’s and daughters’ reactions. When you love something so much it is such a joy to see it reflected in another. Then I spotted these sweet beauties! I have also been able to collect a full set of lovely Transferware from the estate of a dear friend.
The Romance of the Pattern
This red Transferware depicts a beautiful scene called Balmoral. English Transferware was initially created for the every day woman to use in a rainbow of color – yellow being the most rare. I found this at The Country Living Fair.
One of the things I love about Transferware is the details. Patterns are common on the handle and inside the rim.
Florals or botanicals are common and most Transferware includes a bucolic vignettes which could include a couple and/or animals.
Beautiful Sugar and Cream Pitcher
The beautiful set I found included this lovely sugar bowl – with lid and creamer.
Teacup and Saucer
I oftentimes combine patterns – with similar colors. Imagine my delight when I saw these sweet teacups with their saucers. Then to top it off – each teacup and saucer were only $3.00 each!
There’s so much to love in collecting Transferware – them many colors and romantic images. One of the things I love the most – is using my collection.
Finding Ways to Display
I love stacking the teacups atop their saucers or lying three or four on their sides with the handles woven among them.
The beautiful Transferware set makes a wonderful piece of artwork – using the App Waterlogue – so much fun.
Do you Collect Transferware?
If you do – what color do you like? Do you have a favorite pastoral pattern or prefer botanicals? I have to admit – I love them all – and would love any color!
