My New Blue and White Transferware

I wanted to share my newest blue and white transferware with you girls.  I found them yesterday at my local antiques shop.  They were just placed on a corner of the floor dusty, filthy and unnoticeable.  But I new exactly what I had found.  I have been looking for this pattern for a while now.  It is called Charlotte by Royal Staffordshire of England.  This pattern is circa 1830 and comes in blue, lavender and red.  And for those of us that check pricing with Replacements, a dinner plate in this pattern sells for about $29.99 if you can find it.
So when the dealer told us that the sixteen piece set was $35.00 dollars with 20% off, I could not run fast enough to pay for them and leave the store.  They are now where they belong.  Nicely cleaned and being admired and loved as they should be.  Welcome home.....
