Absolutely wonderful antique English Sudlow Burslem spring green creamer and sugar with intricate sterling silver overlay designs. These both even have their original labels. Silver overlay on china and porcelain was an extremely difficult process to do, and is not often seen on china and ceramics. This set is truly stunning! Although this set has age crazing, to me that simply adds to the vintage charm of the pieces---Contrary to what some mistakenly believe, crazing is NOT "damage", it is simply a result of the aging process differential between the glaze and the surface of the actual base porcelain or pottery ware--one slightly expands over time more than the other, causing a delicate network of crazing in the surface coating---as you might also see in antique paintings where the shellac or varnish surface has crackled. (This was explained to me by a professional pottery expert) It has nothing to do with cracks or damage, period. I personally enjoy the uniqueness and beauty of the "aged" elements.
Please be sure to read this description completely so that you are aware of and understand all elements, issues and policies before purchasing, thank you!

These, as with all my pieces, will be exceptionally well wrapped and packaged in the best shipping materials and sturdy, brand-new boxing---through years of purchasing fine china I know how important it is to package things carefully. Please note that if there is breakage caused in shipping, refunds WILL be given when buyer provides me with photographs of the damage immediately upon receipt of the damaged goods----not several days, or weeks, or months after receipt----since these are vintage items there will be no refunds for other reasons, as I take great care to describe items/issues meticulously and thoroughly; and because they are VINTAGE items with the inherent age qualities of vintage items, I do not guarantee or claim that they are new and as-flawless-as new. I make every effort to scrutinize each piece very carefully, and will always note any flaw or issue within the description.
If purchasing more than one item from my vintage china section, I will combine shipping wherever possible/feasible and refund any excess postage once I've packaged all of your items. (Please note that some items may be too large or numerous to safely combine together with others in one package)
I've lovingly acquired and curated vintage china pieces for years now and have carefully searched for matching pieces in the same patterns as well as ones that harmonize beautifully with each other to create a charming ambience for a tea table, celebration, or just to display and enjoy.....vintage china sets such a wonderfully nostalgic mood as well as being delightful to collect... For the first time I am now sharing them in my shop along with my own handmade artworks and one of a kind designer original creations---stay tuned for many, many more exquisite pieces!
