FOR A DEAR CHILD WHO IS STARTING SCHOOL
William Adams III (& S) 1804-1829 5.75 inch child's plate, ca. 1820. My beloved granddaughter starts kindergarten today. She is embarking on a new part of her life. I remember my first day of kindergarten in September 1949. It was both exciting and frightening; who would I meet and who would be my friend? Already, I was more interested in the social aspects of school rather than the academics! Below are two five year old girls separated by 66 years, but united by love. I hope Maya loves…
IN THE WOOD OR LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD AGAIN
T.G. Green & Co. (1864-1987) "In The Wood" 4.12 inch saucer, ca. 1889/Notice the wolf running off to granny's house while Little Red picks flowers for her. "Little Red Riding Hood" is one of my favorite fairy tales. (I have written about it before in my post Little Red Riding Hood In French). When I was a little girl, I learned so much from the story. Listen to my mother! Be careful in the woods because I might meet a wolf. Wolves with good manners can be dangerous because manners can mask…
My brother-in-law gave me an embroidered animal alphabet that was made in 1944. I love alphabet animals and I was born in 1944, so I love the gift. Animals have often been used to teach the alphabet, so I thought I would show you how animals and the alphabet were used by 19th century British potters to teach children their ABCs (I doubt I have ever used the words animal and alphabet so often in one paragraph!) Animal alphabet embroidery 29 inches by 26 inches, 1944/Notice the strange "I"…

TRANSFERWARE CHILDREN'S GAMES AND ACTIVITIES
Mid 19th century 2.5 inch child's mug "Blind Man's Buff" Lots of common children's games appear on transferware plates and mugs: for example, blind man's buff (or bluff) and marbles. Mid 19th century 2.5 inch child's mug "Playing At Marbles" These games were still common when I was a child in the 1950s, but I wondered if the games are still played today. I showed my seven year old granddaughter some of the patterns. She knew about blind man's buff, marbles, charades, leap frog, rope jumping…

Here are some more patterns. All are from the first half of the 19th century. Child's 2.68 inch alphabet mug For A Good Boy Child's 2.62 inch mug A Present for A Good Boy Child's 2.5 inch mug For…
QUAGGAS AND MAMMOTHS AND TRANSFERWARE
A modern quagga, October 2013 I recently read an article about cloning in the New York Times; The Mammoth Cometh or Bringing extinct animals back to life is really happening! It reminded me of my post on April 16, 2013 titled Visit To The Quagga. You may remember that a quagga is a subspecies of a zebra that was extinct by the end of the 19th century, but was reintroduced this century by selective breeding. Photo of a quagga in the London Zoo circa 1870 My interest in clonning and selective…
Boston State House, John Rogers & Son (1815-1842), 10 in. plate The Boston State House today. Still in use. No cows. Some of you know that I am one of the founders of the Tranferware Collectors Club. This October we held our 14th annual meeting in Boston (October 17, 18, 19 and 20). I thought I'd share some of the highlights of the meeting with the hope that you will be enticed to come to our 15th annual meeting in Mendenhall, Pennsylvania and at the Winterthur Museum in Delaware next…
