Red Nautical Rose Antique Reproduction Transferware Porcelain Tea Set with Tray from the Madison Bay Company

This cheerful tea service is made with cranberry red transferware. It has a nautical motif, a ship in full sail, similar to the more complex pattern on Staffordshire Salem Fairwinds transferware.

The tall cream pitcher and sugar bowl coordinate with a pot that is a compromise between the fuller shape of a traditional tea-pot  and the newer coffee server form. The banding has a floral motif, but without any roses. Perhaps rose means the shade, not the color.

The set is an authentic-looking, 18th-century style, but dishwasher safe and microwaveable on a tray that is 16″ long.
