CONDITION OF CHINA
otherwise stated all of our china is chip and crack free, although
this is “vintage” china and there may be some evidence of wear. Due to the
nature of vintage china, please remember that it will damage more easily than
commercial crockery – please take extra care when handling!
All hire items
will be an assorted mix of designs, patterns and colours, however each trio
supplied will be matching - you can mix and match if required! Happy for you to look
at our gallery/inventory to pick designs you specifically want.
All our hire
prices include washing up as this is where most breakages occur, so
this saves you time & worry! Before
re-packing, please ensure that any food has been scraped off plates (use a plastic
or rubber spatula rather than a knife) and all liquids are emptied out.
