Victorian Pottery Charger / Serving Plate
Transfer printing is a method of decorating pottery or other materials using an engraved copper or steel plate from which a monochrome print on paper is taken, which is then transferred by pressing onto the ceramic piece. Pottery decorated using the technique, is known as transferware or transfer ware. It was developed in England from the 1750s on, and in the 19th century became enormously popular in England. The bulk of production was from the dominant Staffordshire pottery industry.
