Vintage Midcentury Myott Staffordshire Dinner Plates - Olde Chelsea Pattern - All White Dishware Made in England
A great social success is a pretty girl who plays her cards as carefully as if she were plain. F. Scott Fitzgerald
Perhaps just the right amount of pretty plainness, this trio of vintage Myott Staffordshire dinner plates in the Olde Chelsea pattern has just enough style to be interesting and just enough plainness to go with absolutely everything on your kitchen table. They are the kind of plates that look equally gorgeous carrying a few slices of roast beef, or a pile of spaghetti, or a piece of pizza, promising to be effortlessly helpful when it comes to getting dinner easily to the table. Each plate is adorned with light crazing marks, adding to the overall delicate beauty of each piece.
Started by two brothers, Ashley and Sydney Myott in Cobridge, England in 1898, Myott Potteries was a successful dishware manufacturer through the first half of the 20th century until they were bought in the 1960's by Interpace. Merged again with Alfred Meakin a few years later to form the brand Myott-Meakin, this joint partnership pottery operated until the late 1980's. The next decade brought further mergers and acquisitions for the company, but it would never return, unfortunately, to its original humble family-style passion and thus faded out by the early 2000's.
Although undated, this set of Myott dinner plates was made most likely between 1960 and 1975.
