TRANSFERWARE AND MURDER!
|The Commandments/Thou shalt do no murder" 19th century child's plate|
|"Bills O Jacks April 2nd 1832" 3/12 inch souvenir child's mug|
|Old photo of Bills o' Jacks Inn (later called the Moor Cock Inn). The Inn was demolished in 1937.|
If this mug was really intended for a child, I could add it to my list of inappropriate patterns for children. (For other examples of inappropriate patterns, you might like to see my blog post titled "Inappropriate Or Frightening Patterns For Children.") If you are interested in more history of the murder, take a look at the blog post, "Bills o'Jacks" from the blog titled "Wessyman."
I wrote this post because after collecting and studying transferware for more than 30 years, I am still surprised by some of the patterns. Please let me know about patterns that have surprised you.
