- Pattern: Concorde
- Made in England by Alfred Meakin
- Vintage 1960’s
- Details: These bread & butter plates have a very modern/retro looking pattern which includes blue and green flowers, leaves, and a lovely green bird on a branch. The cobalt blue and olive drab (army green) combination plays very well with today’s decor. This is a hard pattern to find as most owners tend to keep it and pass it on to family. We like to mix our china patterns and thought this looked very nice matched with a green dinner plate, (we used a Brier Patch plate in the picture) would also work with a cobalt blue plate. If you are collecting this pattern, we hope this set gets you closer to your goal.

In 1845 James Meakin manufactured at Newtown Works, Uttoxeter Road, Longton. James had three sons, James, George and Alfred. James and George founded J & G Meakin (also a well known producer of fine china and ironstone), while in 1874 the other son, Alfred, founded Alfred Meakin at Tunstall, England. Alfred Meakin died in 1904 and was succeeded by his son Alfred James who died only four years later. Alfred John’s uncle Robert Johnson bought the company for his son Stuart Johnson and it stayed in the Johnson family’s hands until 1976 when it became Myott-Meakin before becoming part of the Churchill Group.
