Re: Dishes Used in Hotels, Etc.
Hi Jane, Connie Rogers' excellent Database Discoveries article, "British Shipping Company China", November2012, is available by free download from our website. In addition, the TCC Database includes 10 named hotels on transferware patterns and an additional 2 hotels with their names printed onto the pattern as advertising. The DB also includes 8 Boston Mails patterns. The TCC bulletin recently included an image of a fascinating plate with numerous shipping company cartouches. Recent bulletins also included material on some Navy shipping use of transferware. I forget the details, but we have a comprehensive index of bulletin articles which you can access for free from the website. Loren Zeller wrote an impressive article for the bulletin "Public Houses and Their Place on Blue Printed Transferware" (also available for free download from the website). I personally have a few more in my own database, but the eBay sellers have not provided permission to use the images in the Database. Finally, I think one other DB editor may have additional patterns, but lacks time to upload them to the DB, inasmuch as he is massively overloaded with other TCC tasks. There is a lot of information on the TCC website relevant to your interests available for free; and TCC members have access to the Database. Its now easy to join with Paypal.
