Antique English Staffordshire China Teacup & Saucer Barker Brothers Thanksgiving Autumn Fruits Pumpkins Brown Transferware
Brand Barker Brothers
Vintage Barker Brothers of England
BROWN TRANSFER WARE Autumn Tea cup and saucer (goes with TURKEY PLATTER & PLATES I have listed) Hard to find!
For consideration is this festively colored English transferware teacup and saucer from Barker Brothers. The brown transferware has richly hand painted colors of yellow/gold, green, red/pink and purple highlighting the border of harvest fruits and vegetables, including Pumpkins. The border is scalloped and painted with a mustard gold/yellow band.
This matches the turkey plates (shown in last photo) and platter I have in this pattern as well. Perfect for the Autumn season or Thanksgiving dinner.
It is absolutely stunning!
The matching platter has been featured in Country Living Magazine and in Romantic Homes Magazine Nov 2011 (a 3 page article on me and Turkey transferware!)
