Transferware And the Numerous Patterns What is transferware? Transfer printing as a decorative technique was developed in England in the mid s, particularly in the Staffordshire region. The transferware process began when a flat copper plate was engraved with a desired pattern in much the same way that plates that were used to make paper engravings were produced. The grooves of the design were filled with paint , then the item was heated in a kiln a super hot oven. The pattern ingredients fused with the surface and the pattern became a permanent part of the plate or thus transferred.
While produced primarily on earthenware, transfer prints are also found on ironstone, porcelain and bone china. The decorative themes of the patterns found are numerous and varied and reflect the popular artistic tastes of the times when the pieces were made. Early patterns sought to emulate Chinese designs. Later patterns depicted figural and scenic designs of a historical or romantic nature, and of course floral patterns were very popular.
Animal, bird, and portrait themes are found to a lesser extent. The combination of underglaze decoration and transfer printing revolutionized the English ceramic industry. When these processes were perfected, ceramics could be decorated quickly, efficiently and inexpensively.
