TRANSFERWARE IN INDIA

Guest post by David Hoexter

Transferware decorating a wall in the Junagarh Fort in Bikaner, Rajasthan. Notice that many of the pieces used are drainers.

TCC members can access an article written for the TCC Bulletin by Sue and Frank Wagstaff: 2015 Vol. XVI No. 2, "Return to Bikaner."
