This Large Red Transferware Porcelain Jug features bucolic scenes of people working and fishing in a romantic landscape framed by a delicate border of scrolls and flowers. The soft red historically-inspired pattern will add softness and charm to your tabletop and home décor. Use it to serve water or lemonade at a summer party or fill it with fresh cut flowers. We especially love this jug filled with white and pink hydrangeas or peonies!

The transferware process was developed in England in the second half of the 18th century, most likely in the Staffordshire region, where several producers claimed to have invented the technique. Designs were made on copper plates, then transferred to paper, then to the pottery.
The highly-efficient process made mass production of ceramics with more uniform designs possible and affordable for the middle class. Transferware reached its popularity during the first quarter of the 19th century. You can see a large selection of ceramics at the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg.
