Hyper-rare J&G Meakin Checkmate 21-piece tea set on the 1950's Horizon shape.

Art deco style large teapot, milk jug, sugar bowl, six teacups, six 6" saucers and six 7" teaplates, in black and white chequered design.

Manufactured in Britain in the mid-1950s, principally for overseas markets, this shape and pattern is extremely rare and sought-after.

Meakin backstamp to saucers and plates features fantastic chess piece illustration.

The set appears unused and is in very good vintage order, with the following condition notes, none of which detract from the beauty of this great looking tea service:
- The sugar bowl is not believed original to the set, but is a pleasing shape and matches nicely.
- 1 saucer has extensive clean crazing.
- Teaplates all have clean crazing, though it is difficult to see due to the all-over pattern on the upper surface.
- 1 teaplate has two 1-inch areas of staining, see photographs.
- 1 teacup has a tiny glaze rub on its rim, see photographs.

British made vintage items from Staffordshire.
