Another Common Question -

At the Antiques Shows we participate in we are often asked - What are these? They are referring to Drainers.

When Drainers were originally produced in the mid 1800’s they were partnered with a platter. The most beautiful were made by the English potters in their transferware designs. However, they are also found in the undecorated white ironstone.

These Drainers have become highly collectible - both in the charming transferware designs or in the simplicity of white ironstone.

A wall display of a collection of Drainers can be quite stunning - as well as a very special way to enjoy living with wonderful pieces of the past!!
