PATRICIAN ANTIQUES: STAFFORDSHIRE BLUE TRANSFERWARE ARCHIVE

SOLD ITEMS        Back to BLUE TRANSFERWARE POTTERY

 

The development of transfer printed decoration on ceramics in England during the last half of the 18th century and its application to blue decorated wares by Staffordshire potters provided good quality table ware for the burgeoning middle class. At that time only underglaze cobalt blue could withstand the heat of the glost ovens and this and the use of glazes containing lead oxide gave the wares the characteristic depth of color and brilliance that made them so successful.

Initially, decoration was naively based on Chinese designs, (Chinoiserie). By 1800 European subjects began to appear mixed with Chinese elements.

Following the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815 there was a trade boom and British and European scenes and subjects became the fashion. Views were taken from the popular books of topographical prints of England, Italy, India and other countries and from popular art works and print sources.

Many pieces were made specifically for America. These are generally of a very dark blue color and some are of local American views and patriotic subjects.
