Lyn Medford releases her new collection of birthday plates inspired by English transferware.

Birthday Plate

The new birthday plate series is available in three colors.

“My plates have always been about honoring and celebrating traditions,” Medford said. “I created the birthday plates with the same sentiment. I want them to become a family tradition and a way to honor a family member or friend.”

Lyn Medford, designer and owner of Varsity China, is proudly releasing a new series of plates to add to her china collection. The birthday plate series will be released on May 23, 2011 and available for purchase on the Varsity China web site.

The birthday plate series features the same vintage look of the English transferware that is a signature of Varsity China. The plates feature a festive, but sophisticated hand-drawn border of towering ice cream cones, birthday cakes with candles ablaze, party hats, gifts and confetti. At the center of the plate is the message, “Happy Birthday.”

“My plates have always been about honoring and celebrating traditions,” Medford said. “I created the birthday plates with the same sentiment. I want them to become a family tradition and a way to honor a family member or friend.”

The plates are available in pink, blue, and dark blue. Medford designed the plates so that they are equally appropriate for someone celebrating their first birthday as they are for someone celebrating their one hundredth birthday.

“Someday, I hope to meet someone who received the plate as a child and has eaten a slice of birthday cake from the plate every year since,” Medford said.

About
