A household staple since the mid-1700s, transferware is often relegated to closed cabinets and used only on special occasions. Bring life back to these treasured pieces in your transferware collection with these simple style ideas.
When first made in Staffordshire, England, in the mid-1700s, transferware came in mainly Chinese-inspired patterns. Now, you can find a variety to add to your transferware collection, including chinoiserie, floral, and woodland scenes.
Dust off your red transferware and turn those timeworn pieces into a stylish focal point this summer! Artfully arranging a mix of patterns and pieces in a similar color palette—both in table settings and wall displays—is an easy way to add a pop of color and visual interest to any room. Blending collections together is a simple way to elevate inexpensive pieces.
