Newest Red Transferware Acquisition

I purchased a small,  red transferware tureen on E-bay, and it arrived on New Year's Eve.  It's a repro, not vintage, and was classified as new.  [But it looks vintage, don't you think?]  I envision it being used for an individual serving of soup.  I'll have to keep my eyes open for more at local shops, because the shipping is almost half the price of the tureen.  The hunt is part of the fun anyway!

A Royal Coat of Arms shield is stamped on the back, but it doesn't specifically say Made in England.   Regardless, it's a nice addition to my red transferware collection, and the quest continues.  ;-)
The inside capacity of the tureen is about the same as a teacup - about 8 oz., but 6 oz. is optimal for preventing spills.



  1. Carolyn Aiken has alot of these! Looks wonderful -
    Will be fun to use!

  2. I really love this red and white transferware!

  3. What a sweet tureen! I've never seen any that small and red transferware, too! What a great find! I can see why you would want more. Have a good night!

  4. It's beautiful and will go well with your vintage pieces. I actually found some red transferware at Tuesday Morning recently, a dinner plate, cup, and saucer was 4.99 with 10% off...they had two sets and I bought them both! Happy Hunting!

  5. Your tureen and tray are adorable! Just beautiful!

  6. What a great piece! Wouldn't it be fun to collect enough of these to host a small luncheon? Hmmm ...

  7. Phyllis,

    Were you ever able to find out who the manufacturer is? I have a tea mug (in a blue and green wallpaper pattern) with the same maker's mark. I'd love to find more pieces in this pattern. I purchased my mug in a museum gift shop.


  8. I found more of this pattern:

  9. I have many pieces of red transferware that was given to me. I would like to sell. If anyone is interested, please contact me at
