A Sweet Little Dish

3.04.2014

Did you notice this sweet little dish in yesterday's post? It's a little blue and white dish I found, well, technically my sister found and she wasn't going to get it so I did, while we were shopping at the antique mall.



I love the scene that is on it and the faded blues.

The rougher edges are worn and stained, but that's okay. I like it like that.



I knew it would be perfect as a soap dish.

Especially for a French soap block that I already had.


As we were finding several pieces of transferware in this faded blue we noticed that they were notably more expensive than other transferware pieces. Does anyone know why these cost more? I am curious.


I can't wait to see what little things you may have found plus anything else you want to share at my Wow Us Wednesdays party tonight.

See you there!

  1. That's a very pretty dish, so dainty! I have had fun finding a little collections of cow creamers. My first one was the little brown cow with the bell, like yours. Since they say 3 makes a collections I found a couple more vintage creamers. Plus, just for fun, a fiesta red one that I have on my kitchen buffet. I have no plans on adding more. But I had fun finding the ones that I have! I'd love for you to take a look and let me know what you think. Have a delightful day!

  3. That pattern is very hard to find! It's beautiful! And blue is the most desirable color so the prices can be a bit more expensive.

  7. Was it that same pattern or the blue color that was more expensive? I buy transfer, preferably made in England. I use both blue and red and have some brown pieces too. I find that it's certain pieces or patterns that are more expensive. Also some of the colors that are harder to find (green, purple) seem pricier.

    Your bowl is a pattern that you don't see that much of. I have a few pieces in it in my kitchen. You got a good "find"!

  10. Hi Kimmie! Oh, that's a cute little dish and I love that soap bar. How nice that Kelly got it for you. I don't know anything about this little dish but it's darling!

  11. What a great find that was, Kim. I love blue transferware, too. I have "heard" that it is more expensive because it is the most sought after of all the colors and people like mixing it with flow blue pieces. There are more people with blue & white "collections" than the other colors. Part of pricing, too, is the rarity of the pattern. uh-oh- I think I see a new collection beginning there!!! xoDiana

  14. I noticed your little dish right away yesterday...probably because I LOVE blue and white transferware. Whenever I find a piece under $10 I snatch it up because it's usually more expensive as you mentioned.

  19. I always tell Kelly she find the best stuff. You guys make a great team. It must be so special to be able to share this with your sister. Perfect dish. I want to start a small collection of transferware. I just love it and I did purchase two pitchers from Nancy at Nancy's Daily Dish before we moved. I really haven't enjoyed t hem since they were packed to perfection. I didn't want to disturb them until the new house is finished.

  20. I really love that little bowl. It's perfect for your french soap!

  21. As much as I love that bowl, I'm obsessed with your french soap, it's been one of my favorite things since I bought my first place!

  22. From what I founf TJ & J Mayer were only active from 1843 to 1855. If that's true, that would explain how rare this particular pattern is and why it's more expensive than others. I think I have something new to look for in yard sales! I also love your soap, but you must know that as it's the same I use!

  25. Your transferware bowl is lovely. I have one very similar that had been my grandmother's who was a great collector. I haven't known what to do with my one little bowl.Silly me, put some French soap in it!

  31. I love transferware, and yours is a cute little dish. I also have a thing for pretty soaps, so in my opinion, you've got a perfect combination! I don't know enough about why the blue costs more, but wouldn't it be great if you found a really rare piece!

  32. Love your little transferware cup/bowl with lovely bar of French soap. So pretty. I think blue and white is expensive because it's more popular...unless a piece is rare and then I don't think the color matters. :)

  33. Can you please pass me a slice of grasshopper pie? I'd like to enjoy it while sitting in the room with the fab pink and orange West Elm rug~ :)

  34. I have not idea Kim, but I do appreciate this little dish's beauty! Perhaps that's the reason for the cost. Let us know what you find out dear!

  35. Hello Kim, loving this beautiful dish - it goes perfectly with the French soap! I think when things become popular - their price rises. It seemed anytime Martha Stewart said she liked something, the surge to collect it and the prices increased - toile is such a lovely art - telling a story - I wonder the story behind your dish.
    Blessings,
