Set the Table - Fall Brown & White Transferware


Set the Table - Fall Brown & White Transferware


Transferware is a decorative process started in England in the mid-18th century.  It involves engraving copper plates.  The prints are transferred from the copper plates onto tissue paper.  The tissue then transfers the wet ink onto the ceramic piece.

The patterns are quite beautiful, often depicting life during the 18th century.

There is nothing quite so diverse as using transferware in table decorating.

Brown & White transferware is no exception.

Transferware is easily adaptable to different themes and different seasons.

Apart from having an all-over design or picture, the rims of the plates are often decorated with interesting design flourishes.

The overall place setting starts with a lattice placemat.  We made these from wooden lattice purchased at the dollar store and then cut each one in half using garden secateurs.  We got two placemats from each section of lattice.

The chargers were once gold and have been painted.

The white plate on top of the charger is Antique Scroll from Pier 1 Imports.

The dinner plate is a pattern called Shakespeare's Sonnets by Kensington Stafford and you can see them HERE

The quote on the back of the plate reads "How like a winter hath my absence been from thee, the pleasure of the fleeting year."  
The picture on the plate is Anne Hathaway's Cottage.

The creamy-coloured plate I use quite often for its interesting rim.  It is by Coastline.

The brown and white plate on top of the stack is Myott "Royal Mail".

The pumpkin is plastic and I painted it to match the charger.

You can find the same paint I used for both the pumpkins and chargers. SOURCE

The napkins were doubled.  The top napkin is linen and instructions to make them are HERE.

The napkin underneath is by Hay Market.

Crystal is by Waterford and was a gift from a friend.

I used a crystal hurricane to stack Baby Boo pumpkins interspersed with leaves.

 Each place setting has a single leaf with the name of the guest written on it and held in place by a painted pumpkin.

I hope I have inspired you to look for transferware.  Some of my pieces I have had for a number of years.  I often see them in thrift stores or you can purchase them new.  There are s any interesting patterns and a variety of colours.


Thank you for stopping by.

  1. I adore transferware. And within the past five or ten years, fallen more in love with the browns. In fact, I just saw some beautiful brownish/fallish at Tuesday Morning the other day. And I need more dishes like a hole in the head -- but I might buy two place settings, for Rick and me, just because! Johnson Bros. tend to be my favorites but I'm seeing more now.

    Your table is drop-dead gorgeous and I especially love the white pumpkins (I love putting those little guys in a vase like that, too!) and your wonderful lattice mats, which is a terrific idea. Four star!

    1. Thank you so much, Jeanie. Transferware really is quite lovely and it goes with so many different styles of decorating. It can be dressed up or dressed down. It is whatever you like.

    1. My apologies, MM. I was going on memory and didn't look at the back of the plate. I gave you false information which I have corrected in the post. On the back of the plate is says the following: COASTLINE Fine Porcelain, Microwave, Dishwasher Safe, Made in China.

      So much for my memory, but, I have had them six to eight years and I purchased them at Home Sense.

      I just checked Replacements and they list it as 'Victorian Collection by Coastline Imports'. They are out of stock right now. https://www.replacements.com/webquote/c1ovic.htm

      I hope this information will be of some help to you. Let me know if you find them. I would love to have the dinner plates too.
