About Vintage Tea Cups

Every home should have a selection of fine china or artistic tableware. It gives off a sense of style, class and sophistication that a mug or simple cup and saucer simply cannot achieve. When choosing the type and style for you it is best to look at vintage products, as these have stood the test of time and remain as desirable and relevant today as they did when they were created. You will have a huge selection available to you, from bone china to porcelain, art deco to Queen Anne or Edwardian. The patterns and designs of vintage tea cup have often been lovingly created by artists rather than stamped out en masse by machines. You get a real sense of craftsmanship and skill from a good piece that cannot be replicated using modern manufacturing techniques, and when you drink from them you know that you are holding a piece of history rather than just a drinks container. Different countries and regions specialised in different types of tea cup, from design pattern to cup shape and style to materials used. These have evolved over the years to provide an incalculable number of variations and choices. Take the time to explore the exquisite detailing and innovative designs and you will find a vintage set of tea cups that fits you perfectly. Vintage tea cups are a great way to add character and style to your home, to impress guests or to simply enjoy a cup of tea in luxury. Why have a bog standard, boring mug when you could have a sumptuous, loving crafted piece of art.
