Yeah, blue transfer ware and shell-edged whiteware (sometimes called "feather-edged.") 1850 sounds about right.

That was basically the cheapest , half decent stuff you could get in the day. Imported in massive quantities from England. Both were lower grade versions of designs that were somewhat fancier and better quality in the early 19th c. The blue shell edge pictured is crude and non scalloped edges, which dates it later.

Earlier pearlware looked more like this:

When i was down in Texas, hunters considered the blue "feather edge" shards as a marker for Republic and/or CW era military sites. I'd say a good sign anywhere!
