Transferware ... Beautiful Pottery

Quick Facts About Transferware:

Transfer printing as a decorative technique was developed in England in the mid-1750s, particularly in the Staffordshire region.

The transferware process began when a flat copper plate was engraved with a desired pattern in much the same way that plates used to make paper engravings were produced.

Most transferware patterns sought by collectors today are two-tone in color. Blue and white, red and white and brown and white are the most common colors.

Valuable English pieces made in the 1700s through the late 1800s are rarely offered for sale in antique shops now. Available more readily are pieces made during the 20th century. While they’re not as valuable, they are just as attractive visually.
