Transferware was first introduced in England during the 1750s. The most common color patterns included blue and white, red and white and brown and white. While original transferware pieces are extremely valuable, 20th-century reproductions are easy to find as well as budget friendly. Decorating with transferware is ideal for shabby chic, romantic country or English cottage decor.
Display an entire collection of transferware on a hutch or armoire for a dramatic decorative statement.
Pair transferware with toile fabric for an elegant French decor.
Use a transferware pitcher as a vase for an elegant, yet informal, centerpiece.
Group several transferware plates of the same color but with varying patterns together for a beautiful piece of wall art.

Dress up small nooks, such as the space above the kitchen cupboards, with a collection of transferware.
Turquoise was the first stone in recorded history of man to be used as a gem according to the Library of Congress. The name Turquoise comes from French describing the stone that came from Turkestan, in Central Asia extending from the Caspian Sea to the Gobi Desert. Turquoise has been found in crypts dating from the First Dynasty in Egypt, more then 7000 years ago. The mines along the southwestern coast of the Sinai Peninsula are thought to be the sources. Deposits in eastern Tibet were reported by Europeans as early as the 16th century, and 14th century in India. Marco Polo reported turquoise in his travels in China. The Aztec Indians of Central America, who had in abundance the most prized ore of all, gold, traveled into our American Southwest to find turquoise. Turquoise was so valued by the Aztecs that they demanded turquoise as a tribute from neighboring states of theirs.
