was developed  in the mid 18th century around Staffordshire, England.  It uses a transfer printing technique to decorate ceramics.  A copper plate is engraved with a design, usually ornate and detailed. The design is then transferred to tissue paper. The tissue paper is then applied to the pottery and the ink bleeds the design onto the piece. The piece is then fired in the kiln.

Filling an empty wall with transferware is a traditional English inspired solution.

A few images of Trish's kitchen, author of A Country Farmhouse blog, who collects transferware and has an eye for displaying it beautifully on her open kitchen shelves.
