Green Transfer Ware

Last month when Scott's Antique Market was in town, I purchased my first pieces of green transfer ware.  There was a lady there who had a nice variety of single patterns and pieces in a variety of colors and at great prices. 
Who can resist that combination?  Not me ~ that's for sure.
The first piece I found is this delicate and lacy salad plate from the Ferndale pattern.

I fell in love with this sweet pattern immediately.

The other piece I picked up was a tea cup and saucer from
 Enoch Wedgewood and the pattern is called "Kent".

I filled the tea cup with small ornaments so I would have
an excuse to use it for a Christmas decoration ~

and paired it with white berries and candles.

I love this mixture of green and white shapes and textures.

Last year, soon after I started blogging, I began
collecting brown transfer ware. 
Then I discovered red, followed by purple. 
 And now there is green.
Of the red and green, I only have a few pieces that I
generally only bring out at Christmas time.
I'm trying really hard not to succumb to blue transfer ware ~ which seems to offer some of the most beautiful patterns of all, and that lady had lots of them.  But ~ I was good and kept my purchases just to green and red.
At least for now.

I have some brown pieces but so far I've been able to resist the temptation to have another colour. Love the green though!

Such a delicate, beautiful pattern. You've made it even more attractive with the white ornaments!

The green is lovely. I have a lot of blue transferware. Warning: It's addictive.

Oh Cindy that is a sweet pattern! I have one green transferware piece but lots of red and blue. I have my blue mostly in my yellow bedroom. I had it pretty predominate in my last house in Columbus but now it is mostly red out here. To me the red looks almost like a deep pink. I love your vignettes you created with the new green!~Happy Holidays!
