Buyer's Guide

Most of our china is discontinued and consequently may be previously owned and used, but all of it is in 'Very Good' or 'Good' condition. To help you assess what we mean by this, please read our definitions of condition below for standard and period / collectable items. Please note that item sizes and patterns may have minor variations owing to manufacturing tolerances and/or differences between production batches over time.

Rest assured that we only send out china in the condition in which we would be happy to receive it.

Don't forget to read our buying tips!

Buying Tips

Tea cups for some patterns come in a variety of shapes.  If in doubt, please call us before ordering.

For items that comprise a lid and a base it is preferable, where possible, to buy the complete item to ensure a good fit between the two. Where there are separate entries for lids and bases, we cannot guarantee their fit.

We occasionally receive pieces that do not meet our normal high standards which are available at a reduced price - please call us for details.
