Today, I'd like to share with you two lovely pitchers or as the English say, two jugs. I recently found them at a flea market and I do believe, they go quite well with my growing collection. They are really lovely. They are not marked, but the seller thought they were made in England.
I wasn't really sure how transferware was made. The designs are etched on a copper plate and printed onto paper. The paper is applied to the clay item, peeled off and then glazed and fired. The design transfers off the paper onto the clay.
Transferware comes in many colors and can also be found in multicolor patterns. I collect brown transferware, blue, pink and several Johnson Brother's patterns that are multicolored.
It all blends quite well, don't you think?
The pair are exactly the same, just a little different in size.
It makes me happy to see the floral band that goes around the outside and the inside of each pitcher. I love the design.
The handles look like a piece of twisted rope.
Here is a closer look at the delicate flowers that decorate the pitcher. It looks like a fence surrounds the bottom of the pitcher. There seems to be a gate with a large vase filled with flowers.
I hope you enjoyed my special finds today. Remember to visit my friend BERNIDEEN at her blog. She does a very fun blog party on Monday and you can visit several creative bloggers. She posts on Mondays, but I pop over after my post on Tuesdays.
