We had not been to Denver for awhile to check out our favorite antique mall, but since we were in northern Colorado had to stop in! We don't buy much anymore, but I still like to look for bargains in brown transferware.
On the first aisle I spotted this large platter with a late 1800s Alfred Meakin mark. It is in good shape ---- the price just $6. Even though it is the lighter (almost rust) brown; at that price how could I refuse?
After the rust-colored platter I picked up this bowl with a simple aesthetic pattern but an intricate border. The manufacturer mark indicates that it is from the T and R Boote Co. of England.
It has a 'kite' mark on the back with the pattern name (Summer Time); and the numbers and letters indicate that it was manufactured of earthenware on November 26, 1878.
