One of my fond childhood memories is of my Grandmother taking out her Royal Albert Old Country Roses fine bone china tea set for a special cup of tea on Sunday afternoon - and I suspect that many of us have had similar experiences.
The wonderful variety in design and decoration of English vintage china, its elegant delicacy and its special part in our culture and history is our inspiration. The names of the factories are familiar all around the world, even today – Coalport, Royal Dalton, Colclough, Masons, Royal Vale, Roslyn, Wedgwood, Royal Crown Derby, Paragon…. the list goes on. Their beautiful bone china was, and still is, prized as decorative and precious additions to homes in England and beyond.
The Vintage Hamper Company was born from the idea that this beautiful china is a perfect addtition to a traditional willow fitted picnic hamper. How wonderful to own and use these gorgeous cups, saucers and plates -and to make every picnic special. Quintessentially English, our hampers are elegant, high quality, individual and truly something to bring pleasure and to treasure. We hope you agree.
