One of my wife’s good friends has a vacation home up the hill from the town center. Actually, her parents own the home. We usually go up there once in the summer and once in the winter.

In 1840 Caroline Countess of Seafield adopted this pattern for the Seafield Estate.

This was again modified and given even more fame by the Duke of Windsor by adding the coloured over check.
