Something else I love to look for, when antiquing is dishes in the transfer ware style. I don't know why, but I get so excited to find something unique and picturesque. And half of the fun for me is turning it over to see where it was made. I am not sure if all of the following pieces qualify as transfer ware, I have heard some refer to these types of dishes as toileware. I would love to get some input! Any experts out there?
"The Friendly Village" Johnson Bros. Staffordshire, England
The larger plate is more Johnson Bros. Staffordshire, England also "Friendly Village, and the smaller plate is "Myotts Bouquet" also Staffordshire, England. I think that many china companies are in Staffordshire, England
"Old English bouquet" Ridgway Staffordshire England
The red and cream ceramic is a little candle holder. In the front of that is Royal Homes of Britain "Hampton Cout Palace" (built in 1515) made in England Johnson Bros.
Copeland "Spode" England FLORENCE
This little cup in the front is a souvenir from "Anne of Green Gables" the larger mug in the back is "Crown Trent" Staffordshire England.
a reproduction in 1932.
I love the floral green! Made in England Strattfordshire
I love this one with the embossed raised edge. This one was made in the USA
This also comes from a company in the USA I think it is from a restaurant set of Dishes.
Our Everyday dishes. Not from England, just copy and made in China, but I love them anyway!
This set suppliments our everyday. Just wanted to have extra.
Hope you have enjoyed this post about transferware dishes.
