Elizabethan Checkmate China for Sale
At yay retro! we love vintage Elizabethan fine bone china, and have sold many pieces in their flowery 60s Portobello, Pop, Carnaby and Chelsea patterns. This week we spotted some lovely check Elizabethan pieces, again very fine and high quality china, yet with a more 70s shape.
The pattern is called Checkmate, and we think is rare as have never seen it before. It consists of mustard yellow and black diamonds on neat squares. This is the big new colour way for modern vintage homes, and would look simply amazing. We love the way the cups flare out, with a wider base than top.
Plus the matching jug and sugar bowl are oval, making the set extra interesting to use and look at.
