Brown transferware sings the softer notes of fall, paired with white pumpkins and hydrangeas.
I love ironstone and brown transferware any time of year, but fall is the season when it really shines.
I pulled out some pieces to give the transferware its due for a seasonal table vignette in the Potting Shed.
Harvest Time by Johnson Brothers was my grandmother’s everyday pattern and I have her remaining pieces, including this gravy boat, ideal for fall and ‘harvest time’ nesting.
Limelight hydrangeas have made their fall metamorphosis, changing from white to green, now burnished from days of summer heat.
Faded beauty to pair with brown edges of transferware.
My love of brown transferware is tied to memories of my grandmother and I think of it as the dish equivalent of comfort food . . warm and homey. Pieces were picked up at antique malls and consignment stores over the years. I didn’t make a conscious decision to collect, it just sort of happened. . .a piece, pitcher or plate at a time.
An orphaned transferware tureen lid that was missing its bowl. . .
Williamsburg Aviary by Wedgwood single cup and saucer . . .
An unmarked pitcher with pretty floral details. . .
Autumn’s Delight by Johnson Brothers with its multi-colored fruit pattern is evocative of harvest season.
You can see at an Autumn’s Delight Alfresco Fall Table, HERE.
Mason’s Ascot is a favorite pattern with its scalloped border, multicolored floral basket and butterfly detail.
You can see it at a Fall’s Last Hurrah Table with Cornucopia Napkin Fold, HERE.
I couldn’t resist the pretty flower basket details of Royal Staffordshire Clarice Cliff ‘Charlotte’. . .
A Johnson Brothers Windsor Ware Dover teapot is a favorite for serving up blooms . . .
Or pouring a cuppa Johnson Brothers Staffordshire Bouquet.
Floral details on the teapot lid are too pretty not to serve up on a plate!

The summer heat and humidity is still lingering here, I’m anxious to ‘delight in autumn’!
Hope you’re enjoying some beauti-fall weather where you are. ♥
