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.
Beautiful Sugar and Cream Pitcher
The beautiful set I found included this lovely sugar bowl – with lid and creamer.
Teacup and Saucer
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.
