Early Staffordshire Turkey PlateThis is an early 10 inch turkey plate from a personal collection. For more than 100 years, this English transferware has graced the finest Thanksgiving tables. By the 1870s, America's rising middle class hungered to celebrate the occasion-and to do so with fine (meaning English) Thanksgiving china. England's response to the need was a series of delectable transfer-printed dinnerware patterns depicting the holiday's bird of choice-and their popularity lasted for the next 100 years. "Transferware turkey plates were high-end and highly priced, so somplete sets were usually bought by the piece, " says antiques dealer Pam Konopka. (Taken from Country Living November 2008 issue)
