Hi Mike. Thank you that would be good of you. Carol 30/06/22

Hi, Found your site by chance and ordered two plates which we are extremely pleased with, very well packaged too. Thank you. Geoff & Isabel Truscott 27/06/22


Hi Mike
Thank you so much for that information. It is really helpful and interesting, as it confirms that the tea service was a wedding gift for my late mother in 1936.  
Many thanks
Doreen  22/06/22

Good luck with all your stock listing.

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.

Hi Mike,

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.

Hi Mike,
Many thanks for your email and for taking the time to let me know this, that is really helpful!
I’m currently using it to put fruit in…finding new uses for old things :-)
Thanks again,

Thank you so much!

Excellent service.

PP 6/6/22

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)

PH 5/6/22

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.

SA 3/6/22

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!

Thanks very much Mike, your suggested replacement arrived today as well. All good.

Hi Mike
Thank you for the information about the saucer, I really appreciate you taking the time from your busy schedule to provide some information about my grandmothers little saucer.
thank you again. Jackie 25/05/22
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 much. My mother will be very pleased with this information. We appreciate your quick response.
Dianne 20/05/22



I have spent a ridiculous number of hours searching on the web, writing Limoges and other folks to no avail!
This is something to go on!
As there is wear and tear on the guilt, would 15 Euros for a tea cup seem a fair price?
(There are also the dinner plates, salad dishes, bowls and a few serving pieces....ugh!)
Again, can't thank you enough for your great assistance.
Best wishes,
Anita 16/05/22


Thanks so much for such a kind and helpful response!
Please find the attached pics for the set.
Best wishes,
and thanks so much again!
Nita 12/05/22


Thanks Mike for replying to my email. 
I should have included a picture of the base.  I don't know if it makes a difference?
Thanks for confirming that it isn't a collectible.

I just wanted to let you know I had received my replacement china and to say thank you.  You have gone above and beyond to fulfil your customer service obligations regarding the hiccups with the delivery. Thank you. Please feel free to add this to your review on the website.
Kind regards.  Emem. 01/03/22


Thanks for your swift response and your valuable information,it was very kind of you!
I love them and don’t intend selling them at present,but,if I do I the future,would you be interested in buying them? I know you are not buying anything at the moment though!
I am going through boxes of china and glassware that were in my Aunts attic, so may need some advice on other things at some stage as you are so knowledgeable!
Many thanks once again.

Hello Mike,
Thank you for responding with the information so quickly.  Unfortunately, it’s not the news I wanted to hear but I appreciate your honesty and frankness.
My grandparents were so dear to me and the service carries  a lot of sentimental value.  Completing it HAS been a life-long mission!  I was hoping I could complete it in time to pass it on to my daughters some day.  
Again, thank you so much for the info, I will continue my searching and if you could save my email should you stumble across any pieces I would be so grateful.
Thank you again and take care.
Colleen Garner 21/02/22


Hello Mike,
Thanks so much for getting back to me, thats really interesting and helpful.
Much appreciated,
Nicola 21/02/22


Hallo  Thank you
My uncle bought it in the 1920s and I am trying to find more pieces. It (Hindostan Minton & Hollins) seems to be very rare ( as you say). But it must have been for sale in the UK as it is in the catalogue from Minton and Hollins?  It is very risky to send from the US. I live in Sweden. 
Kind  regards Ingegerd 21/02/22


Thanks Mike, I appreciate the information. Cheers.
Mike 21/02/22


Thanks so much for your brilliant customer service.

Emen 13/02/22

Excellent service.

Nick 31/01/22

Thank you for your reply Mike, I appreciate your time
Louise 29/01/22

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

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
Many thanks Mike. 
The delightful Yuan plate has arrived and looks excellent. It was securely packed and arrived on time. Vintage Farmhouse Antiques provided an excellent service which I would recommend to anyone. 
Many thanks 
Nick 19/01/22


 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,

Hi Mike

My mother in law collected  this set - she would  have been married in the last 1930’s. I have a lot of it and  it was in atic for several years. She did replace  some with ’The Bible’  pattern.
I’m going to use the original set again.
You have been very helpful  thank you so much.
Kind Regards
Mary 29/10/21


Hi Mike,
Thank you so much for getting back to me. I've looked over all of the pieces and I have found appears to be a number 10 and/or OK which is in green on the back of most pieces. Again, many thanks for your help.

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

Hi Mike,

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.

Many thanks,

Dear Mike,

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,

Molly 19/04/21

Hello Mike Yes my delivery came the very next day! Am very happy with it.

Thank you 

Hi Mike

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 😃

Warm regards

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
Kind regards

I am also looking for the William Tonks bat wall sconces. If you ever come across any of these, could you contact me?

SA 1/10/20

Hi Mike,

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.

Katie 30/9/20

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?

Thank you,
Judy 29/9/20


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.

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, 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.
Take care,

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.

Thank you very much for your prompt attention to my order. Excellent service and speedy deliver, all within 24 hours of ordering. The plate was exactly what I was looking for. I am impressed.
Yours sincerely

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

Hello, Mike -
     I know it's been a very long time since your teapot got over here, safely.  I just wanted to write and tell you how pleased I am with it and the wonderful, kind, and helpful assistance you provided throughout the ordering process.  I ordered it around March 31, and it arrived around April 9.)
     I have had a bit of tea in it already, and every time I look at it, it reminds me of my mom, who introduced me to tea when I was in kindergarten in suburban Chicago, Illinois.  It's a beautiful teapot, with the deep green ivy leaves, and it's in our china cabinet right now.  Yes, I want to enjoy it, and I want to keep it safe.
     How is your business going, with the pandemic still going on?  Here in Virginia, we are about to go into Stage 3, which means that people may gather in groups of more than 10 - such as in grocery stores.  I don't think that's the final stage, but I'm glad that our state government is proceeding with caution.  We are thinking about going to my family's cottage in northern Wisconsin (near the state line with the upper peninsula of Michigan), and we're closely watching Wisconsin's pandemic statistics.  Our states of Florida, Texas, and California are pulling back on their allowed openings because they lifted some restrictions too fast, and now their virus cases are skyrocketing.
     I hope you and your family and friends are staying safe in this mess, and thank you again for that beautiful teapot and all of your help in getting it safely here.  When it is safe for you to travel, and if/when you come to the Washington, DC, area, please let us know:  we would love to get together with you for tea, coffee, and/or lunch or dinner.
Take care. Most sincerely,
AW 30/6/20


Dear Mike and Kate just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful pink teapot, I love it.

Hi, delivery has arrived, thank you so much.
I inherited a set in that pattern and I am trying to build it up so please feel free to let me know if you have any others. I have seen the teapot but it’s a bit out of my price range. Would be interested in any colour of the same design
Many thanks 
Helen 16/6/20


Hi Mike,
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.
Kind regards

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!
Best regards

Dear Vintage and Antiques,
Thank you so much. That is really kind! I love my 'new' china and am so pleased to have found your website. It must be wonderful to be able to bring so much happiness to people when they open one of your deliveries or look at your website - so many beautiful things! 
Stay safe.
Best wishes,
Tracey 28/4/20



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

Hi Mike,

Hi Mike & Kate,
It was interesting to see a Chinoiserie Teapot of Ca.1810.I collect Mandarin pattern English Teapots.I have about 78,also 8 Coffee Pots,all pre 1800.It was just that your teapot was so reasonably priced, that I strayed from my date limit! I have Derby, Lowestoft, Liverpool, Worcester & Bow. An odd Badley-Littler. I would always be interested in anything you might find, though it is more & more difficult to find items.
Regards David 18/4/20


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


Dear Mike and Kate,
The "Eternal Beau" gravy boat and saucer arrived on Friday, and so I wanted to thank you for the prompt delivery and its immaculate condition. It was to replace one that belonged to my mum, which I had broken by accident, and she was very pleased with it!
With best wishes,
Andrew 7/4/20


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,

Kind Regards  Len 21/3/20
