HELLO EVERYONE! I hope you had a great weekend, and have already had a good start to your new week. Dusting this cupboard is on my list of things to do this week. It’s always fun for me because I get to say hello to all the different pieces. I am always delighted by some sort of details on the pieces that I might have missed before – I think that’s part of the fun in collecting transferware. The details are just amazing on most transferware.
[From Spode’s Website] Josiah Spode perfected many pioneering techniques during his lifetime, including in 1784, the process for blue underglaze printing on earthenware, from hand engraved copper plates.
… The Blue Italian Pattern has been in continuous production since 1816. The central scene is thought to be of ruins in Italy and is framed by an Imari border inspired by Chinese porcelain.
I never get tired of the Blue Italian pieces – full of details, yet never ostentatious, but ever inviting! I am setting the table with my Blue Italian dishes, care to join me for lunch?
Thank you again for stopping by. Have a great day!
