Beehives and bees are popular transferware patterns because people have always admired and benefited from them. Here are a few of my favorite bee related patterns.
|Enoch Wood & Sons (1818-1846) Beehive and Cottage pattern plate, ca. 1825|
|Davenport (1794-1887) Beehive in a Skep pattern, ca. 1825|
|Ralph Stevenson & Williams (1825-1827) Beehive and Vases platter, ca. 1825|
