Homeland Transferware

I have been developing quite a fondness for transferware. I started out with blue and white, and have since found a pretty set of red and white (perfect for Christmas!) and most recently, brown.

I was super excited when I saw this set at Home Sense: Homeland by The Victorian English Pottery, Est 1819 by Edward Challinor.

Love the animal motif with the acorn and oak leaf borders.  Perfect for fall and Thanksgiving.

As you may recall, I am in the very preliminary stage of planning my kitchen facelift.  One feature I do love in my kitchen is the upper glass cabinets. While I initially used them for storage, with my Mom's help, we decided to pretty them up with transferware, silver, and odds and ends. 

The newest pattern looks very seasonal in here-my first touch of fall decorating.

{It is so difficult getting decent pictures of these cabinets.  A photographer, I am not!}

You can see the sample of beadboard wallpaper in the back of one of these cabinets.  I will be putting it on the back and painting all the interiors white (Marble white by Benjamin Moore, which is actually more of a warm white/cream).  Also, the cupboards are going to be painted, and new hardware put on. I'm not sure when this will happen, as we have other, more pressing projects, but I hope it's soon!

Do you love Transferware as much as I do?

I love your new dishes, Andrea, I've always loved tranferware, too! They look great in your cabinets, which are really fabulous. Were they custom made? I would love to see them after you paint the insides!

I love those dishes, Andrea! You had me at brown and white transferware and then I saw the bunny on the first one. That would combine two loves in one item! I wonder if our Home Goods here will have them. I think it's time for a trip there to see!

Yes I do! I love the brown and white transferware the most, as a matter of fact. I love how they look in your glass cabinets. The lighted cabinets above your regular ones are wonderful! That is such a great feature.

Hi Andrea,

I'm thrilled to hear that you love our pottery made in Stoke-on-Trent, England.

However, this pattern is actually called Homeland. Woodland Harvest is a different pattern manufactured by a different company. Would you be able to update this on your blog and pinterest?

I hope that you continue to appreciate the rich history and heritage of pottery made in Stoke-on-Trent.

Kind regards,
Megan Jones (Royal Stafford, The Victorian English Pottery)
