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!
