Beautiful bone china tea sets to buy

We offer:

  • Luxurious picnic Hampers - each one bespoke and fitted out with vintage fine bone china
  • Delightful vintage English fine bone china beautifully boxed as gifts

William Morris is said to have declared “have nothing in your house which is not both beautiful and useful”... At the The Vintage Hamper Company we believe that even today traditional English fine bone china is something special.

It can add a touch of magic to a birthday celebration, an elegant hen night, a wedding or a Christening, a farewell party or a graduation.

One of our stunning hampers will make your summer concert evening or day at the Polo into a real event...

Or it can be a thoughtful gift for someone dear, or simply brighten your morning!

A little bit of history...

From the mid 16th century imported Chinese Porcelain was highly prized in Europe and its production method a closely guarded secret. It was at the German Meissen factory that the formula was unlocked in Europe in 1708 and the first English success came in 1748 in Thomas Frye’s factory in Bow, East London. By 1750 there were already 130 potteries in Staffordshire and by the end of the century Josiah Spode had perfected the process of making what came to be know as bone china at his factory in Stoke - using bone ash and white clay from Cornwall, fired in the heat of Staffordshire coal.

In 1791 the East India Company announced it would no longer be importing Chinese Porcelain – and for almost 200 years fine bone china produced in and around Stoke on Trent became an almost exclusively English product.
