Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Does all the vintage china match?
Answer: This is the most common question we get asked. All our cups will match their saucers but the rest will be set out as a mis-matched collection to give an eclectic look. This provides an amazing look with vibrant colours and unusual shapes. Let us know if you would like to see more photos of table settings we have created.
Question: Can we clean the vintage china ourselves?
Answer: Due to the tableware being bone china it is therefore unsuitable for the dishwasher. We prefer to hand-wash the items ourselves to preserve the delicate designs and also to ensure they are sparkling clean and well wrapped for our next customer to enjoy.
Question: What is included in the styling service?
Answer: This really depends on your requirements. The main service will include dressing the tables according to your style, laying out the vintage china, personalising place settings, decorating candelabras with pearls and placing your flowers. For an additional fee, we can also supply the accompanying table flowers, hand-written name places, old-fashioned sweets for bon bon dishes and even your wedding cake. In essence, we will ensure your venue is dressed the way you desire without you having to lift a finger!
Question: What happens if we break an item of vintage china?
Answer: Obviously, accidents do happen! We will take a damage deposit cheque 50% of the subtotal order amount (excludes surcharges etc) or £100 (whichever is greater). Assuming nothing has been damaged or missing, we will return the deposit in full. Otherwise, we will inform you and return the deposit minus the damage charges. We supply a full list of damage charges with our terms and conditions.
Question: Can we collect/return our order ourselves?
Answer: You are welcome to collect and return your order to our base in Greenhithe at no cost. If you select our delivery service, a delivery fee will be charged for all locations over 10 miles from Greenhithe. The delivery fee is calculated on 0.45p/mile plus congestion or toll fees if applicable.
