We love the scenic transferware made popular by 20th century English potters. Among our favorites: the Friendly Village pattern by Johnson Bros which is still produced today, and Heritage pattern by Ridgway potteries. The most popular transfer colors seem to be brown, green, pink and blue. Often hand painted colors were added over the transfer before the pieces were glazed.
Meakin Tintern Dinner Plate
“Tintern” by Alfred Meakin is a lesser known pattern which features a scene of the village of Tintern, Monmouthshire Wales. In the foreground, a shepherd tends his flock on the bank of the River Wye. In the background is a historic landmark, the Tintern Abbey ruins. The Abbey was founded in 1131 and was surrendered to King Henry VIII in 1536. If you are interested in a wonderfully detailed history of the Tintern Abbey complete with numerous beautiful photos please visit this website .
