Q. What is Vintage Original?
A. At Bonny and Blithe we specialise in original vintage English bone china tea wares. These items are usually between 50 and 100 years old, they are pre-owned and may have been used. They may show signs of usage such as cutlery marks or wear to the pattern or gilding. They were also made at a time when quality control was not as strict as it is today, therefore there may be minor manufacturing imperfections such as smudges to the pattern or gilding or firing dust in the glaze. None of these minor imperfections affect the use of the items and are all part of the charm of owning original vintage pieces which have been previously loved and treasured.
Q. What is Vintage Inspired?
A. Our range of vintage inspired pieces are brand new items made in the style of pieces from the past.
