Volume Five.

No decision has yet been made as to a subject for Volume Five of The Transferware Recorder but the current favourite seems to be views of continental Europe although another set of British Views has also been mooted. The publishers would be delighted to hear of any support or alternative suggestions. We would also be keen to receive images of any transferwares which might be suitable for inclusion in future volumes. Please use the "Contact Us" tab above.

When Bill Coysh and Dick Henrywood assembled The Dictionary of Blue and White Printed Pottery back in 1982 they had no idea how popular the subject was to become. A second volume of The Dictionary and books on transferware by other notable authors have followed. The Friends of Blue and the Transferware Collectors’ Club have reported new patterns and much other information, the latter particularly with their website and ground-breaking database of patterns, but there has been no further attempt to assemble our knowledge into reference form except for Gillian Neale's Encyclopedia of British Transfer-Printed Pottery Patterns 1790-1930. The Transferware Recorder fills this gap.

Dick Henrywood has been researching transferware for more than three decades and he started the Recorder in 2013 with a selection of British views. Two further volumes have followed covering more British views, now joined by Volume Four covering patterns from literature. For information on any particular issue click on the front cover.

This is a major transferware initiative designed to expand into a comprehensive series of reference volumes, essential for collectors, researchers and dealers. For information about availability, prices and ordering please email:
