Chintz by the Yard?

One mail order house sold new chintz in bulk. The eight-piece group below was job-lot priced at $120. Not bad considering many vintage pieces in similar sizes, shapes and patterns would sell for $75-$200 each.

Chintz is a generic name for brightly colored transfer decorations on china made in England. Many original manufacturers have put their vintage patterns back in production.
