See this pattern in a tablescape and learn more about its history at my blog:
As part of my transfer ware collection, business and love of history I often seek out periodicals and books that tell about the authors whose works find their way onto transfer printed wares. One such book is The Hunt, Portrayed by J. F. Herring Sen., a 28 page publication by W.T. Copeland & Sons. The book tells, in short, the story of J F Herring and offers images of examples of some of the variations and pieces from the Hunt series.
