My Mother's Antique Transferware Dish Collection “In My Mother's Home.

My Mother's Antique Transferware Dish Collection "In My Mother's Home..."

Happy Mother's Day to you all!  At this time, I am writing to you from my parent's coastal Maine home, which we recently inherited and underwent interior renovations all winter.  AND can I tell you how wonderful it feels to be back here after a long winter away!!  To learn more about this family home and early renovations, click HERE.

 

This post is a second in a series that I am going to share with you entitled "In My Mother's Home...", where I will share many of her and my father's antique collections, furniture, and house that we are now so fortunate to call home too.

 

I also found the timing perfect to join a few of my besties over on Instagram in sharing our mother's dishes and tablewares to celebrate Mother's Day.  So be sure to stop by and check out their Mother's Day treasures too.

My mother was an antique fanatic!  She collected and thrifted antiques with my father for years throughout Maine.  She had numerous antique collections, especially dishes, glassware, furniture, and pewter.  I'll be sharing many of these collections with you, here on the blog as we go through the house and organize all my parent's things.  But for today, I'm sharing her transferware dishes, a few pewter table pieces, and the antique dining table and chairs that she and my father used since they built this old replica home called a Raeside - Dame 30 years ago.

Most transferware patterns sought by collectors today are two-tone in color. Blue and white, red and white, and brown and white are the most common colors. Sometimes transfer printed designs were enhanced with translucent hand-painted enamel over the printed patterns to add even more interest.

 

My mother's transferware dishes are all from Royal Mail, made in England.  I don't know if she purchased them all as a set or collected them along the way.  She used these as her everyday dishes until she passed away two years ago at the age of 93 and my dad this past fall at 99 years old.  Click on photos to enlarge.

 

 

 

 

My mother also adored pewter and left behind an amazing pewter collection.   I'll be sharing her pewter collection with you soon.  In the meantime, here are a few adorable table pieces that she had.  AND, my mother used everything she had.  I remember these pewter pieces filled with salt, sugar, milk, etc. on many of her holiday tables.

 

 

 

 

PIN THESE IDEAS FOR LATER!

 

 

The antique table and chairs is a set that my parents antiqued together and was used as their main dining table since they built this home.  It's small, but perfect for two-four people.  Very unlike the large farm tables, we all see today.  They were definitely of another generation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did you notice there are no tablecloths or placemats?  I luv the simple scattered look of all the various antiques including the glassware, flowers, and one simple pewter candlestick.

 

 

This antique tablescape is the first thing I have styled in my parent's newly renovated home, as you can see by the photos.  I enjoyed it so much and sharing it with you all here made it even more that special.

Why I refer to Love as "Luv"?
All my life I have been inspired by both my parents and a close aunt with their beautiful & unique antique decorating styles, much of which I incorporate into my own home designs today.  Over the years their letters, cards, emails, presents, and more all included the spelling Luv vs. Love.  And I have adored it!  I have always taken this to be a part of a generation gone by that I treasure dearly!  And I hope you will too friends!
