"Transferware refers to a decorative technique developed in England in the mid-18th century particularly around the Staffordshire region which was used on ceramics and pottery, dinnerware, and other delicate items. It consisted of transfer printing, from an engraved copper plate used to print the pattern on tissue paper, then the tissue paper traces the wet ink to the ceramic surface. The piece is then fired in a low temperature kiln to secure the pattern. This technique was utilzed both over or under the glaze, although the underprinting method is more effective and long lasting. This process replaced hand painted ceramics as it was costly and time consuming. "
