The Teacup AtticFrequently Asked Questions
Do You Buy Teacups?
The answer is YES!
We purchase vintage bone china made in England. We are looking for pieces that are in excellent vintage condition (no chips, cracks, crazing, hairlines, restoration, fading, repairs, scratches or wear). We buy full and partial dinnerware sets as well as individual teacups with their matching saucers.
We enjoy items from Royal Albert, Aynsley, Shelley, Paragon, and Coalport. We will also consider other brands like Spode, Queen Anne, Colclough, and Royal Vale, etc. We do not purchase Noritake, Royal Doulton (including figurines), anything marked China 9999, anything that is microwave or dishwasher safe, crystal, or hummel figurines.
We are accepting Christmas patterns until October 1st, 2020
We will respect physical distancing and take every precaution to ensure the safety of both our customers and staff. Please note that we pay a percentage of fair market value for pieces.
We only buy locally (Ottawa Valley area) as it is important for us to see the items before entering into a purchase agreement. Buying outside our area incurs risk and expense. We do not purchase from the US as customs fees make purchasing prohibitive in addition to the expense and risk of shipping.
To submit your pieces for consideration, please email photographs (these can be group shots) to email@example.com
