Red Transferware

I love red transferware, it makes me happy every time I look at it.  I started collecting it a few years ago and now we have enough to use it at holidays.  It looks very pretty at Christmas time!  It is all mismatched, but that's the way I like it.  Variety is the spice of life, right?  The pie safe that I keep it in belonged to my Great-grandparents.  It used to be painted a sickly green.  I love the way the sunlight shines in the little tin punch designs in the morning.
Since I started collecting transferware I have noticed that in many historical movies the china they use is some type of transferware.  Often it is red but sometimes it is blue.  I always point it out to Andy and the boys and they roll their eyes.  They would never have noticed otherwise! (:
All this talk of transferware is putting me in the mood for a tea party.  Maybe I'll have to plan one soon.


  1. Beautiful dishes and the display.

  2. I have noticed the same thing; transferware in movies. I notice it all the time in fact and also point it out to my children and hubby...they now point it out as well! Your boys will catch on soon! lol
    I was just contacted a couple of months ago about providing a set of red transferware for a movie set!
    Your collection and display is lovely! I like it all mixed up as well.


  3. Thank you for your kind words ladies!

  4. I love your beautiful dishes!!! The standing plate in picture #2 is the pattern of my everyday dishes. Since they are "vintage" and not antique, we have no problems with dishwashers etc..
    I also have a twin to your bigger teapot!! We need to compare dish pictures, but alas I have no blog :^(
    Blessings to you,


Thanks for leaving a comment! I love hearing from you.
