Manufacturer: Jackson China
Pattern name: Homespun
Date of samples: 1963 – circa 1973
Notes: Homespun is identified by its sample labels, still affixed to the china, and as noted on Jackson's Elmira style shape (cup) and Vernon shape (saucer).
The bold border design in deep cobalt or navy blue consists of gingham squares interspersed with tulips. Its simplicity goes well with the "country" theme used in interior design in the Seventies and Eighties.
