As the majority of our items are either vintage or antique porcelain, they have probably been used. Most items collect small scuffs, surface marks and signs of wear during their years of service, it would be impossible to list them all, however, where there is something significant, these will be pointed out. During the time period when these items were manufactured, there was no such thing as quality control, and the manufacturing process was not as it is today, so there may be a spot or two from when the set was fired in the kiln, black specks under the glaze, pin pricks where a glaze bubble popped, and non flat bases etc. The above is all part and parcel of the charm of old china, so if you are looking for new or near new items, then perhaps a visit to a shop might be your best option.
