American Historical Transferware Treasures at the Smithsonian – Examples from the Ellouise Baker Larsen Collection
On Friday, October 21, 2011, TCC members had the fantastic opportunity to view selected items from the Ellouise Baker Larsen Collection at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington, DC. The collection, much more extensive than the 30 pieces we were able to view, was donated by Larsen in 1962. It is rarely on public view. Those fortunate enough to view the collection were attendees of the four-day Annual TCC Conference, which was held in Baltimore.
