Brown & White Transferware

I love brown and white transferware and most that I see is a light brown color.  I found this one plate at a thrift store a while back and it is a really dark brown.  I love the look.


Isn't it a beautiful pattern and color.  All the identity there is on the back of the plate is "Two's Company".  If you know more about the pattern, I would love to know.


When I was doing the spring cleaning in the LR and DR, I decided to use the plate on the DR table in a vignette.  I moved the silver champagne bucket floral arrangement from the coffee table and added my little dog figurine.  A dark brown table runner finished off the display.


 This ties in so well with the beige, brown and white theme I have going on.  It looks so quiet and restful to me.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I am having a ball going through the links to the 100th TTT.  You guys are amazing.  The party is still open if you want to link up.

  1. That plate is very pretty. I like the color, but I'm more intrigued by the fact that it's an octagon. I had to count the edges twice to be sure. I haven't seen too many of those.

  2. I love your plate. I have some of those (different patterns) from Two's Company too. I love your feathers mixed with the silver and transferware too.

  4. I love that plate! I just posted something with my red transferware!

  5. That's a very pretty plate, Marty! I like the dark brown and white or cream, like this one, myself. I don't often see them when I'm out at the antique marts here, but maybe I'm not hitting the right ones. I will keep looking though!

  10. Very pretty vignette, Marty. If you ever need to get rid of that runner, I know a lady in Georgia who would take it off your hands. :o) Have a great week.

  12. I really like your display! I especially like the arrangement in the silver container. I have one that looks just like yours. It currently is holding my ruler collection but I think it's time for a change, so I think I might try and copy what you did!

  28. I don't believe this plate is part of set. Two's Company is a giftware line that appears to consist more of individual pieces for decoration rather place settings. Google the company name and you can see the different lines they carry.

    Love the plate--it caught my eye because I bought one exactly like it yesterday at Goodwill!

  36. Marty, really lovely plates. Two's Company..if it is the one I am thinking of, it is a company that sells home decor and gift items..I have a frame from Two's Company..My neighbor used to be a sales rep for them..

    Love the brown and white transfer ware..I just placed two of the plates on a table in my dining room bay window...

    Great vignette and isn't it fun when you find a treasure!

  40. Hi Marty,

    Don't you just love the shape of it? I do! Your plate is a new plate. It would have been made in China most likely. It is a reproduction of a piece from the Aesthetic Movement period (appx 1870-1910) when this style first came into being and became so popular.
    You can read more about the Aesthetic Movement and the see some examples on my post here:
    http://nancysdailydish.blogspot.com/2010/03/aesthetic-movement-and-transferware.html

    I have been concentrating lately on collecting wares just from this period.

    Hope this helps!

  41. This plate came as a set of seven, and I think I bought the set about 5 years ago. This plate is the only octagon-shaped plate and the largest in the set. Four of the other plates are round, and two are round/scalloped. They vary in size, and each has a different pattern. I bought them from an online vendor who sells/sold Two's Company products; although, I can't remember who the vendor is, now! :) I have the set hung in my dining room, and I have always loved it! Let me know if you would like for me to email you a pic of the plates!
