From December 1 to February 26 we will be closed and unable to prepare parcels for shipping. You may still order the items listed during this period but it is with the understanding that your items will be shipped on February 27th. If you prefer you can wait until our return on February 26th to submit your order.

How to shop?

We are pleased to have you shop here where you will find a big variety of English dinnerware patterns. We make your purchase easy by providing the easy-to-use tabs below. These link you to the manufacturers that have provided quality china over the last century. We have also added a very effective search tool to the right of the page. You will find it useful if you are looking for specific patterns, flowers, colours, types of china, shapes, etc.

We listed most of the manufacturers in their alphabetical order. However, we grouped some manufacturers in the tabs labelled Chintz, Other “Made-in-England” and Other Countries. 

In each of the pattern pages we have provided a description plus a list of the items available in that particular pattern. You can shop with confidence because we’ve inspected all the items listed and found them in excellent condition. For a few items, when warranted, we have specified in the description any specific potential concern about condition.

While you are shopping if you find a better price for the china we carry please let us know. If we don’t have what you are looking for shops such as Missing Pieces, The China Cupboard and Echo’s China might be able to help.

How to buy?

Shopping is as easy as adding the items that you like to the shopping cart. Once you have entered the shipping address on the cart page, the site will provide the exact cost of shipping. We will only ask you to make the payment once you will have seen the exact cost to you in the currency you have chosen.
