Vintage China Care

Recently we’ve had a few people ask us about caring for vintage china. Having so much vintage china means we’ve gained real expertise in maintaining vintage ceramics and porcelain to keep it bright, clean and beautiful and this is the perfect time of year to have a look at all our stock and give it the once over. So here’s our tips for keeping all that vintage gorgeousness looking lovely and fresh.


Whenever we get “new” stock the first thing we do is give it a good wash – you never know what’s been in or on it……mmmm

Washing crockery correctly is a vital part of vintage china care. If you keep these hints in mind you’ll keep your teapots and trios in tip-top condition… but do remember to enjoy a cup of tea when you’re done! With a few biscuits of course!
