As a lad, I’d visit my Grandma regularly. In the dining room was a cabinet crammed full with a fine china tea set that was given to her (and my Grandad) as a wedding gift in the 1930s. The tea service was for ‘special occasions only’ and so I grew to admire and be excited by using fine china – if we were using it, then it must be a special occasion! It’s usually the case that people don’t have that ‘for special occasions only’ tea set anymore, which is why we offer vintage china hire.

Even today, using vintage china is a special treat. It transports you to a bygone era; one of style and sophistication. Tea seems to taste better, the cakes look dainty, and the occasion is memorable. We offer vintage china hire for any number of people. Each person will receive a matching trio (cup, saucer, and cake plate), and for every four people, we’ll add a teapot or coffee pot, cake stand, milk jug, and sugar bowl.

If you wish, you can hire any one (or multiple items) from our vintage china hire collection – you don’t have to hire the trios in order to borrow a tea pot! Don’t forget, to compliment our vintage china hire, we also hire vintage embroidered table linen and napkins, as well as vintage table centrepieces.

The best part about our vintage china hire? We do the washing up!
