Re: Dinnerware in Finland, inquiery of the pattern.
Hello Amelie, this is a lovely transferware service, it must be wonderful to eat off the plates. As you can see, made by Davenport of the Staffordshire, England area. It looks like each shape has a different pattern. We would include this series in our Romantic category. The scenes on your pieces appear to be "made up", i.e. not real scenes or locations. I would say this is 1840s-50s, perhaps a bit later. Unfortunately I was not able to come up with an actual name for the patterns or series, as we don't seem to have them in our pattern database, despite having 464 results when I search "Davenport". I am going to contact a couple of our members who are better versed in Davenport than I, and see if he has any ideas. Could we have your permission to use your images for our database? Oh, tell your friend NOT to place these pieces in a dishwasher. Wash by hand only.
