We select and sell only the best pieces of authentic English vintage bone china and antique bone china and never sell anything that is chipped, cracked or damaged. Our pieces are pre-owned, and pre-loved.
As many of the old potteries have closed down, vintage bone china and antique bone china items are no longer produced, this makes them harder to source and each piece more collectible and unique!. Beautiful and unique items are added as we treasure hunt around UK, so keep checking for latest arrivals.
Items can be purchased as single items or as a duo (single cup and saucer) or a trio (single cup, saucer and tea plate). We also stock a variety of vintage and antique bone china tea and coffee sets. These items tend to sell fast, so snap them up when you see them to avoid disappointment. It is very rare that we get repeats. The fashionable trend now is to select different cups and saucers and mix and match them, either in similar coloured sets or similar design sets and for those really creative a mix of colours and patterns. Click on(Mix & Match) for suggestions of colour and pattern combinations which will help guide our customers in creating their own individual bespoke tea sets.
All items are washed and thoroughly inspected for quality and condition. Our china is packed and shipped off to you in an attractive gift presentation box.
As antique and vintage items have been pre-owned it should be expected to have minor marks or wear, which are commensurate with normal use and age. This may also include some minor crazing on very old items, such as bone china pieces from the Victorian era, but this will be explained in the item details and again these are all signs of something truly original and old. Some minor imperfections are also consistent with the date of manufacture, this includes tiny lumps in the glaze, grit under the glaze, firing spots, pitting, and imperfect or misaligned pattern, most of these are hardly noticeable All of these imperfections should be considered acceptable and are not considered to be ‘damaged’, they are simply part of the character of owning something unique and old! Vintage bone china pieces can be anywhere from 50 years to 90 years and antique bone china even older!
