I’ve long admired transferware dishes, but somehow never got any. Til now! I worked out a trade with one of my readers here in Birmingham, when she let me know that she was having a yardsale and had this set available. I told her I wanted it and she wondered if I might like to trade out some decorating advice for the dishes. Would I ever?! So, that is what we did and I came home with this lovely set of brown and white transferware, one of my very favorite colors of these beautiful dishes. I might officially become a dish-aholic now!
There are 8 plates and many other pieces too, including serving dishes, so I’m very happy with my new set. Plenty to use for company and a party. They are by Royal Mail and are English ironstone.
I promptly moved the white Target dishes that were in my china cabinet and put these beauties in. They will be the stars now.
Aren’t they so pretty?
I’m so happy to have my first set of transferware.
And I will treasure it.
Do you have a favorite set of transferware too? What color is it?

I have the same dishes. They were my second set of transfer but I love them dearly. The brown is so elegant and understated. Exact set as you-8 with some accessories–not enough small plates and bowls! (never enough!)
I was delighted to see the pictures and read about your treasure. Barb
