Hi Mike. Thank you that would be good of you. Carol 30/06/22
Thank you for your time looking at my photos Mike and I appreciate your advice.
I wanted to get a teapot that was a good match to a vintage pink rose and green china set I inherited. Yours was the nearest match
Thanks Mike for the info. Appreciate your response.
Thanks ever so much for taking the time to reply. It's really appreciated. Having looked at it again, it is Gardena. I've managed to find it now on Google. (I was just sorting this for the Charity Shops and not sure about 'things'). Had items given in the past from relatives who are no longer with us.
Kind regards and thank you.
Thank you so much!
I found you in Google as I’m looking to replace a saucer from a set I’ve inherited from my late nanna (I believe I may have broken it as a child)
Found you when doing a Google search for old cup and saucer. Could you put a note on the order, - Happy special Birthday Chris and happy anniversary to you both too! Love Shirl and Keith xx (Could you mention the date when the item was made, think it said 1945 to 1948.
Previously bought side plates from you and impressed with quality and service
Hello, I'm not a collector but hoped to find something special to celebrate the Jubilee with!
Dear Mike, Thank you very much for your email, for a speedy reply and the information. I shall have to look a bit closer for more detail . Best regards Liz 21/05/22
Dear Mike , Thank you for your speedy response. I'm not sure I want to sell either of them but would love to know something about them and a value then my husband might appreciate them a bit more ! Kind regards, Liz 20/05/22
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME AND HELP!!
Thanks Mike, I appreciate your time and the input. I have been looking on eBay, as well. I will keep my eye open and am willing to piecemeal the various sets.
Found your site when I looked on Google for bud vases.
I took a picture of my plate using google lens and once the plate was identified your business came up. Wish you had another plate or two.
So beautiful,just as described, sent question to seller and they responded quickly, for an overseas item it arrived so quickly and was packed very well, we have 6 place settings of this beautiful antique pattern and this soupiere is the highlight,
Found site through an internet search. Love the ethos of your business. Website user friendly & easy to find what I was looking for.
Fantastic service, thank you so much
All good, thanks.
The Summer Chintz Jug is beautiful and arrived in excellent condition and next day delivery. Thank you so much.
Thanks so much for your brilliant customer service.
Hi Mike, they just arrived, safe and sound and I am very pleased with them. Thank you very much indeed. Kind regards, Alan 08/02/22
My thanks for your reply and suggestions.
Kind regards. Dave 04/02/22
Thank you Mike. I will keep my fingers crossed that some pieces turn up. Regards,
Thank you for your reply Mike, I appreciate your time
Thank you for your reply Mike, I appreciate your time. I didn’t really think the plate would result in me having a life of luxury, but I attach two photos for you to look at. If they become too big for one email, I’ll send them separately. Louise 26/01/22
Hi Mike thank you for coming back to me. They are all the same flower design, not sure how old they would be but the colours are still bright. Look as though they are hand painted. Take care Carol 22/01/22
Hi Carol, these are Copeland Spode pattern 4060 English Ironstone Soup Bowls 4060 is an un-recorded version of Bang Up 2886 first produced in 1830 You may enjoy this page https://spodehistory.blogspot.com/2017/11/spode-and-bang-up-pattern-or-pattern.html
Thank you so much Mike for the info. They are in good condition but look old and when you look at the flowers they are slightly different. No other marking just 4060. Karin had a large collection of porcelain, she lived in Ceylon after the second world war, with her husband who run a tea plantation. Karin’s niece gave me the dishes when they were clearing the house, so it is really nice knowing more about them. I was frightened to use them just in case I broke one, but you are right, ideal for pasta. I will use them and raise a glass to Karin and remember her with love. Take care and thank you for taking time researching the plates for me. Carol 24/01/22
Hello Mike, as per our email exchange I've bought all four, many thanks. I will send you another email, but I will be on holiday from this Saturday for nine days so can you delay in sending them out to me please.
Thanks, Alan 18/1/22
Great, many thanks for your help here. Kind regards,
Thanks Mike. Obviously I don’t know a lot about it so it’s great to have some background and know the period. Many thanks again. Cheers Deanne Australia 18/01/22

Hi Mike Many thanks for the advice, most appreciated and if you ever come across a 6877 tea cup (I just need the one to replace a cracked one) and remember this conversation or even come across the illusive tea pot that really would be appreciated.
Thanks Marie 21/05/21
Thank you very much! I’m in the US and have had this for years, I have the entire set. Maybe I’ll look at some of other pieces for hand written things. I’ll keep searching😊 I appreciate your help! Thank you, Jen 19/05/21
My wife collects bone china teacup sets. I have a Colclough set that I wasn't able to identify on the internet and sent a request to Vintage Farmhouse Antiques. Within a day, Mike answered my questions completely and thoroughly, although I live in the US. That is what customer service is all about. I recommend them highly! DD 11/5/21
Lovely friendly business with a genuine love of collecting and preserving antiques. Hoping I can visit in person soon LB 10/5/21
Dear Mike, Today I collected my order of 6 Royal Doulton Hamilton cake plates. Thanks for your careful packaging, the plates arrived in perfect order !

Dear Mike, Thank you very much for your quick and kind response and the information given. Much appreciated!
Thank you for this information I am glad you like my platter. Can you keep an eye out for my pattern? Do you do that? I am particularly seeking soup plates, desert bowls and sandwich plates. And things that would match.

All arrived; I love the two Coalport tea cups, and the saucers are perfect with them. Thank you. If you ever run across exactly same pattern Coalport but in the larger coffee cups, I would be interested in them as well. I'm too fed up with Google these days to leave a review with them, but will gladly leave a good one if you have another platform for reviews. Very best wishes,
Excellent service, item arrived quickly, well packed and I would recommend

Oh wow, Mike!!! That is fantastic news. Thank you..
Thank you so much for this email and your previous email. The excellent customer service is really very much appreciated.
I bought some lovely old plates to display in the kitchen of my new house. They arrived today, beautifully and securely packed and I am SO pleased with them. I can feel that Mike and Kate have a real love for their collection and the pictures on the website give an excellent representation. A real find if you love old china! Thank you!

The China I bought was packed really well and arrived in Sydney in perfect condition. Mike was very helpful with the whole order.

As you can see the blue and white China arrived this afternoon.
Thank you for wrapping it so well. It has arrived intact, no damage at all. We are thrilled with it and are going to put it on our wall. Once again thanks for taking so much time and effort with this shipment. I’ll keep watching your site for any more blue and white, but alert me if possible if you get anything we might be interested in.
Best Regards Barbara 19/02/21 Australia
Thank you so much for your quick reply Mike. I'll have a closer look and measure up then come back to you.

Thanks so much for your helpful reply. I wondered if you could take a little look at these too..Lauren 18/01/21
Just the job, very fast delivery thank you a+++
Very pleased with purchase and quick delivery
Hello Mike Yes my delivery came the very next day! Am very happy with it.
Thank you so much for your time, expertise and assistance. I didn’t really think they would be worth much so that’s no surprise at all. I’ll give them to an elderly lady I know, she loves collecting all teacups 😃
Thank you so much for the prompt delivery of my Duchess bone china tea pot. I got my first piece of this set from my mother before she passed away and continued to collect the whole set. The only thing missing was the tea pot and I was giving up hope of ever finding one. I think Ive been searching for just over three years so imagine how happy I am to finally complete the set. Have a wonderful Christmas and thank you once again
Delighted with my ‘hard to find’ pink willow pattern plate. Excellent communication, prompt despatch and carefully packaged by Vintage Farmhouse Antiques. Thank you!

I have purchased several pieces of china from Vintage Farmhouse Antiques and loved all of them. Service is always excellent and my purchases arrived quickly and safely. The selection of items available on the website is fantastic and it was very easy to navigate and purchase. Thank you and I will definitely be purchasing again for myself or my clients!

Super item-exactly as described. Fantastic service too!
Gorgeous, high quality item! iVery pleased!
Very many thanks. It arrived safely and is perfect. I’ll keep an eye on your website.
I just purchased the William Tonks desk tidy from you on eBay. Thank you very much!
I am also looking for the William Tonks bat wall sconces. If you ever come across any of these, could you contact me?
Very pleased with product and service. Would buy from this seller again.
Thanks so much – that’s really helpful to know so I can organise shipping. Ah I love Blakeney (we were actually in Baconsthorpe so about 10 minutes outside of Holt)
I’ll be sure to use the website again, such a great find! I’m so excited to use the china, I miss being able to just pop out to some of our lovely antique markets in Norfolk. Many of the pieces of furniture are here with us now.
Hi Mike and Kate,
I received the candlesticks last week and they are beautiful—just as pictured. I used them for the first time on Monday night. While I was watching tv in an adjoining room, I heard a noise from the kitchen where we had placed the lit candles. The top rim of the candlestick (the area surrounding the base of candle) broke off and hit the kitchen table once the candle was nearly finished.
I am so upset because I truly loved the design and had hoped to have them for many years.
Were they cut glass or crystal? In either case, is it ok to let the candles burn to the end? I assumed they could take that amount of heat since that is what they were designed to do.
Is there any chance you have another pair or something similar?
Dear Mike and Kate,
Thank you so much. It was my pleasure to order from you.
Many thanks, KW 29/9/20
Very pleased with product and service. Would buy from this seller again.
Thankyou for your reply I would appreciate if you would keep me in mind for yourself or any one you could maybe put me onto as needing the room to store them. I wish you all the best for the future of your business.
yours sincerely Graham 19/9/20

Hello Mike and Kate, I have been impressed by your great service. My first order I did as a trial and I was amazed with the speed with which it arrived. I am collecting Losol Ware Adam plates and if you did come across more of these I would love them. I am looking for 6 or 8. Thanks again for your great service, S P 4/9/20
Hi Mike and Kate
The bowls arrived safely and they are fab thanks. Please can you tell me whether all the plastic packaging is recyclable.?
Hi Mike, Thanks so much for your help. The number on some of the pieces seems to be 7787 I think, in gold but a bit smudged. My very best wishes, Carol 16/8/20
My order was beautiful! Everything arrived safely! Thanks for the quick shipping.
Thanks for you kind note and offer of a discount through last June! We will keep an eye out for goods on your website as the offerings suit out taste. Cheers,
Dear Mike and Kate, I hope you have been well since our last correspondence. I would like to thank you again for your excellent service. I could not be more pleased with the Wedgwood Ivy House china.
Hi, thank you I received my order and love it! It almost completes my set. I have tried to look at the Colclough enchantment rose teapot but the link is broken
Thanks, Abi 6/7/20
Dear Mike and Kate just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful pink teapot, I love it.
Thank you very much for your email and the discount code. I’ll make sure I leave a review.
Hi, delivery has arrived, thank you so much.
Just to say how delighted I am with my order.
I have the tea set which belonged to my mum, promised my daughter in law she could borrow it for an afternoon tea she was doing on Sunday. I was horrified to find I only had 4 cups, so I was pleased to find 2 on your website. I didn’t actually think they would arrive for Sunday but they were here Saturday morning!!
Thank you from a grateful, happy customer.

Dear Mike and Kate,
Just a note to thank you for the brilliantly packaged Brandon-Cox print that arrived today, safe and sound. It has been a genuine pleasure to do business with you from start to finish and I will certainly visit your 'virtual' shop again and will happily recommend it to others. I wish you every success in these strange times!
Thank you so much for your help on this and for sending me the links and for your help on this. Really useful and much appreciated.
Hi, just wanted to say thanks again (left feedback on ebay) but the service you offered was exceptional, especially in these difficult times and much appreciated. In addition the tureen is a perfect match to my china (royal doulton Carlyle) without being the same, I am thrilled.
We will recommend your services, thank you
Dear Kate and Mike
My order arrived earlier in the week and I have been meaning to write and thank you but I seem to be overwhelmed by too many things to do! Thank you so much! The wicker basket is beautiful and in pristine condition just as you described and the teapot is gorgeous - I have a modern one so it is fun to notice the slight differences
Kind Regards Nina 12/4/20
Hi Mike, sorry no google account, but we very much appreciate your help, would give 5 star rating if possible, we are so pleased to replace these items as my wife bought this teaset 60 years ago in Cardiff,
