Transfer ware is a process where, a design, printed on tissue is applied to wet ceramic. When the ceramic is fired, the tissue burns away, transferring the pattern to the ceramic item. This was made mostly in England for the American market. Some American companies made it as well. It was an iron stone ware, or soft paste pottery. Was most often used as everyday ware. Some house holds, in rural areas used it daily and was the best they had.
Brown pottery was made by many companies. Most common ones were, USA, Morscroft, Bennington and Rockingham. It is so named for the dark brown glaze. Some times darker than others. The only design was usually a pushed out pattern on the clay before the glaze was added.
I chose and antique oil hanging lamp for the ceiling light. The micro wave is on the top of the step back antique cabinet. I used white washer and dryer. I hide the laundry stuff in a white metal laundry box with lid, that I found at World Market. Not an antique, but looks right and every thing is out of sight.
