If I was looking to purchase a new dinner setting, I would struggle to look past brown and white Transferware. I have loved this traditional pattern ever since being introduced to it back in my university years. The parents of a boyfriend from that time had a beautiful blue and white setting and it is one of my lasting memories of that relationship. Terrible isn't it, but I was bewitched. Even though the blue and pink settings are beautiful, my preference is for the brown. I find it to be more sophisticated and would sit beautifully in a modern contemporary home. The added beauty of Transferware is that a full matching service is not required, mixing different patterns only adds to the enchantment of these stunning plates.
