Welcome to my collection of antique and vintage fine china tea cups and saucers, tea sets, tea pots and accessories. This is a collection of fine porcelain and bone china items that I have found at various estate auctions.
Most of the items on this page are vintage or antique with a sprinkling of nice contemporary items.
I have always felt that collecting fine china tea cups, tea pots and accessories is much like collecting miniature works of art but much easier on the budget. I hope you find some you like in this collection!

About Bone China
Bone china is a kind of porcelain specific to Europe and made from a combination of clay and bone-ash. The most famous and most expensive bone china was and is still produced in England.
This china was coveted for its white-translucent finish, and its hard chip-resistant surface. It was first produced by Spode during the 1700s and is still produced and sought after today.
Today antique bone china is highly coveted and avidly collected. New bone china is also regularly produced. Bone china is still produced primarily in England and, though the process has become more mechanised, the basic formula and firing methods developed by Spode remain in use today.
