More Brown Transferware











By now you may know how much I love this stuff. Brown transferware. So you might imagine how thrilled I was to find a few matching pieces scattered around for very little money at a not-too-promising flea market recently. 





The pieces weren't displayed together so I got a little jolt every time another one popped up, each one more special than the last.




The saucer was fifty cents. The two dinner plates, inexplicably, two different prices for a total of less than four dollars.





When I moved a little farther on and found a matching major piece I began a fevered hunt for more  and was not disappointed. 










I have never seen this ironstone pattern before. But the unmarked pieces confirm that they are very old. And the details are wonderful. (Love this square platter!)





None of the items in this collection were more than seven dollars each. No wonder I am such a dish addict!!!





So perfect to display for fall. . . .  





A tureen with its lid!





This darling little biscuit jar may be my new favorite.





The pretty little lid is different on each side. . . .










I find the small pattern differences simply enchanting.










It seems these unassuming companions have lived together a long time. I wonder how many others were snapped up before I arrived on the scene with my twenty dollars! (I'll try not to focus on that!)






For now they are enjoying life on my dining room table where they are as cheery as a fresh bouquet of flowers. . . .






















I hope it's a beautiful fall week for you!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

What a wonderful set of dishes you found! It is so hard to find those here and they wouldn't be that cheap. It is just gorgeous and perfect for a fall table!

Wow what a wonderful find! Brown transferware seems so unassuming but I love each and every pattern I come across.
We are packing up our collection and taking it to our Arizona home away from home so I can enjoy it there as well.
Enjoy your day..

So pretty! I love the shape of the biscuit jar. The brown is just perfect for Fall. My favorite transfer ware are the blue/green colors. I know how exciting it is to find pieces that you love for a really good price. Lucky you to have found these!

WOW! WOW! Did you find these in Albq.? If so, Albq. must be the hotbed for brown transferware. My best finds ever came out of a mall there on two separate trips. Congrats -- great find. Sally

I can't believe the good luck you had for finding these wonderful pieces!!! I love all the sweet details on each piece, and they look in perfect condition too!!!

We have slim pickings in our area, and I am always on the hunt for the brown, and of course, anything in blue......I'm a bit envious, but glad you are enjoying your find!! xoxo

You lucky duck! These are each one wonderful, Jacqueline. I love brown transfer ware too. Love the way you've grouped them on the tray of white linens.
Perfect for autumn. Congratulations on the great buys!

Debbie said...

Your new found dishes are lovely, Jacqueline. I cannot believe how inexpensive they were!
I had to read your two previous posts, too.
I just love coming here. I sit with a bagel, and cream cheese, and a glass of o.j. and just enjoy the images, and content of your posts.
It's always such a pleasure to see what you are doing.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Now that is some fall fun! I need flea markets (we have none here :-( ) Lovely new pieces... I adore the bisquit jar, maybe cause that's where the goodies are stored, HA! Hope your bisquit jar is full of goodness!!
Hugs...

elizabeth said...

That would be a dream come true find for me! Gorgeous!

My Cottage Diary said...

I like your new dishes, Jacqueline! The pattern seems more contemporary for the dishes being old. (I don't know how to say that without it seeming like I'm disagreeing with their being old, but I'm just commenting that they have a "young" pattern. Created by someone with a fresh new way of seeing things maybe!) In any case, they are lovely! Blessings, Bess

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Jacqueline,
What an amazing "score" on brown transferware, dear friend!!!
I adore the biscuit jar!!!
While I was enjoying seeing the slight variances in each piece, I was drawn to your choice of linens in the backdrop. Simply gorgeous!!!
Fondly,
Pat

Deborah Montgomery said...

Beautiful! I especially love the tureen and biscuit jar. What great finds!

Burlap Luxe said...

Why o, why o, why did I thin out my brown transfer ware giving up on collecting it. You my dear Jacqueline have encourage interest in the patterns of brown and whites.
I have to agree with you....that biscuit jar is a wonderful piece, I so wish it were mine to love.

Thank you for the fall china stoneware post and the inspiration in collecting.

Jeanie said...

I understand your brown transferware passion -- I was staying at a B&B this past weekend and there was a lovely brown plate on a stand and I wished so much it could come home with me!
