Stunning handpainted creamware. While we don't have a maker's mark for the china, we do know that creamware was at its most popular between 1740 and 1840 so there is a very good chance that this incredible set is 200 years old, making it the oldest set in our collection. Featuring exquisite sponged on guilt and beautiful flowers it comprises 8 trios, one large sugar bowl, one large milk jug and two cake plates! Beautiful and in amazing condition!

Fabulous tea set by Grosvenor China, made in the 1920's for H Blairman and Sons, an antique dealer. The set is classic Grosvenor - the wide cabinet cup shape, the vibrant banding overlaid with gilt and the floral motif. The styling is superb. Please note that three of the teacups have hairlines and therefore we're offering this set as a display item rather than for everyday use. The gilt is in good condition and the decorative quality of the collection is very high

Breathtaking 10 trio coffee can set made by Wild Bros. Consisting of 10 trios (teacup, saucer, plate), a lovely milk jug and two round cake plates.
This would make a show stopping addition to any collection.
Each piece in the set has firing marks commensurate with the age of the pieces and of course their method of production. There is a hairline crack in one of the cups and also in the milk jug but for a set that is nearly 100 years old the set is in remarkable condition.

Beautiful handpainted trio from Coalport in a stunning quatrefoil design. We've never seen another one like this so can't really provide many details other than the backstamp means it was produced in Coalbrookdale between the years 1875 and 1881. The trio is in good condition other than 2 small chips on the top of the cup and the set is priced accordingly.

Absolutely stunning, very fine & very old tea set by Grainger's Worcester Porcelain. The set details a beautiful tea house scene in the iconic blue and white colours of classic Worcester china, and comprises eleven teacup trios, a milk jug, large sugar bowl and two cake plates.
We must note that two of the cups are slightly damaged, one retains two hairline cracks and a small chip on the rim and the handle of the other has clearly been reattached at some point and also has a chip.
However, with such an old and rare set as this we could not bear to split the pieces up so we have made an amendment in the pricing so that the two cups come for free!
