Purple Transferware

I have been wanting to complete a set of purple transferware for a few years now.
This is a pattern I really liked and purchased a few pieces of it





I love the flowers inside the cups its pattern is Spode Mayflower



Then I seen this pattern Charlotte and decided I liked it also, it's a pretty lavender color. I took these outside today in the 100 degrees heat LOL to get a better picture of them. I have all my windows covered with vintage white  tablecloths to keep the sun out of my south windows where I don't have curtains up. My air conditioner is not running to keep my house cool in this extreme heat we are having




This plate is what got me interested in purple transferware. It belonged to my Great Aunt Ollie who lived in Sikeston Missouri. The picture on the plate is of her Methodist church she attended her entire life from age 16. She loved dishes also and had antique dishes as far back as I can remember as a child when we would visit her home. Her and her husband never had children however she always had dogs and lots antiques




here is a small purple vase with some dried hydrangeas in it that sure look lavender to me they were originally a dark blue





Hope you are all staying cool. I am still getting out and checking my thrift stores for purple transferware dishes which is not to be found by me so far

  13. I never knew transferware came in so many colors. This would have been my mother's favorite. :):) The flowers inside the cups make them even sweeter. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  16. Janice, I've never actually seen any purple transferware. I think people must hang onto it because it's never in any shops I go in.

  20. Oh, Janice, that is gorgeous! Purple transferware is not easy to find, unless you want to pay a lot of money. I was fortunate enough to find several plates to keep that I just love. I just love that Spode you have there. And yes, the blue hydrangeas dried to a nice, soft lavender! Hope your summer is going well. My garden's doing really well this year - just enough rain and heat to keep things looking lush!

  21. Janice, it is absolutely gorgeous! I love transferware, but don't have any purple. So pretty and I can just see it being used when the Lilacs are in bloom. Thanks for sharing with SYC. You will be featured tomorrow.
    hugs,
    Jann

  23. I love the purple transferware. I have a few pieces but find it hard to come by. I did find a nice cup and saucer (Purple Old Vine by Wedgewood) in a flea market last fall and haven't seen any since. Lots online but expensive. Good Luck in your search.
