Today we will be talking about collecting transferware and first we will start with how and where it began. The Staffordshire district in England produced Staffordshire wear in the 1800th Century figures in different shapes but we are going to talk about today transferware that was made in this district by different potters during the 19th Century which is throughout the 1800's. It starts out with a variety of blue, dark blue transfer in the 1820's leading up through the 1830's, 40's 50's and 60's with the lighter blue. The brown transfer that we see here, the red transfer over here and mulberry black transfer or looks like black and brown. So those are the ranges that we will discuss today.
