|19th Century English Transferware|
I started my Dishy News blog on January 17, 2013. This is its first anniversary. It is a personal blog about transferware patterns and shapes that I have enjoyed throughout my nearly 40 years of collecting. I take most of the photos and write all of the text. I have shared what I have learned about transferware patterns. Here are some of the blog posts that have been the most popular:
Thanksgiving and Turkeys on Transferware
Yellow Printed Brownware
The Dog In The Manger And Aesop's Fables
Transferware Spitting Cups
Transferware Toast Racks
Spode's Convolvulus Pattern #2
Little Red Riding Hood In French
What Is A Bourdaloue
Wedgwood Water Lily
These are just a few of the 116 posts I have published so far. They are some of my favorite posts, but I like some of the other posts even more. Let me know which are your favorites.
Below are some photos of my collection. You may remember that I live in Earthquake Country, so the dowels are a nod to security.
|I mix transferware with other objects. The orange Fiesta carafe from the 40s or 50s belonged to my grandmother. The toucan is a Oaxacan wood carving. Notice the ship diorama in the right corner.|
