|William Brownfield (& Son (s) 1850-1892 "Spring" pattern plate.|
The vernal or spring equinox is March 20, so I thought I'd see if there were any transferware spring patterns. I found a few.
|T. & R. Boote (1842-1906) "Spring" 6 inch tile.|
|Mintons (1872-1950) 6 inch tile "Spring: Ploughing."|
|S. Fielding & Co. (1880-1917) "Spring" 12 inch pitcher.|
|Maker Unknown, 5.56 inch child's plate titled "Spring."|
Spring flowers are also popular, so I thought I'd use this post to show you some photos of spring flowers in local gardens (and mine). You can skip these photos and go to the bottom of the post, where I added another transferware Spring pattern.
|Camellias and Azaleas|
|Obedience and Erigeron (daisy-like flowers)|
|One more photo of a camellia|
One more Spring pattern.
|Bovey Tracey (1801-1836) "The Gem" 5 inch by 5 inch loving cup. "The Gem" patterns depict scenes from the four seasons. Here, maypole dancers illustrate Spring.|
Spring is my favorite season, although I like all four. We are accused, here in Northern California, of having no seasons. We do have seasons, but they are subtle. Let the rest of the country be jealous!
Two more Spring posts: Doves and Clematis.
