Saturdays are great days! Today we had breakfast at a local coffee shop, sitting by the window and watching the world wake up. Afterwards we made a stroll to another part of town and just had a look around. I stopped in a few thrift shops and found some transferware plates. I collect red and white and all plates at home are second hand red and whites! At the summer house I have started a collection of brown and white. Today a found two, they are made by Villeroy and Boch and are called "Burgenland".
I also found a few things that I could not leave behind (...as if I did't have enough...). One was this beautiful plate by Adam's whith an add for the litographer on the back.
The other were six small dishes for nuts or other snack.
I have a weakness for transferware. It has a historical and cultural dimension, often telling a lot about the time it was made. I also find the way they are made very interesting. If you would like to read about this my friend Nancy has a great blog post on Transferware and how it is made.
She also sell some beautiful transferware on Etsy.
