Green Transferware




The inspiration for this table came from the green and white transferware luncheon plates I found at Savers about the same time I got the gray plates I used in the August 2 post. Transferware is usually pretty scarce when it comes to thrifting so whenever I find 4 or more pieces I pick them up if they are in decent shape. These were really good, only 1 small chip out of 5 plates.



I have had the green salad plates for a few years and they are the same shade so this is what I topped the stack with.




The green stems are probably from the 1930's and were found at Goodwill a number of years ago. I sure wish I knew the maker/pattern name. Every little while I check eBay to see if I can find them.


I have used the Oneida Louisiana flatware.


The napkin rings were found at Pier One on sale for 99¢ each.


The centerpiece is just a piece of one of my house plants that I am rooting in an ironstone pitcher.

I don't think I've ever seen green transferware and this is gorgeous. I love the aged patina on it also. As always a beautiful table and the simple centerpiece of the houseplant in the pitcher is perfect.
