We have a vast collection of china which is authentic and beautiful. It makes a wonderful impact teamed with our linen and cutlery.  We love the look of a small tea set matched with other china from different sets. There may be minor imperfections and damage, but we will never hire anything that we wouldn’t be happy to eat off or drink from ourselves.

Obviously none of the china is dishwasher safe, but will arrive with you hand washed. When it is returned we ask that you wipe the china down with kitchen paper and we will wash it up for you back at Loves Lane Vintage Hire HQ!

We have some collections of a matching cup, saucer and plate, please ask if you would like these included in your collection, or as an addition to it. We are can provide the china for small tea parties all the way through to large wedding breakfasts.

Here at Loves Lane Vintage Hire we have boxes and boxes of lovely vintage cutlery for you to hire.

We have sets of certain cutlery styles, including Georgian, Fiddle, Beaded and Old English. These can be hired in sets or as individual pieces for a stunning mix and match look.

A full place setting comprises of a starter knife and fork, a main knife and fork and a pudding spoon and fork. We can add to this setting with soup spoons, side knives, fish forks and knives. We can, of course, also provide serving spoons, grape scissors and ladles. If you want less, that is fine too.

For tea parties we have pretty tea knives, forks and teaspoons, many of them in their original boxes. We can also supply beautiful knives for cutting Wedding Cakes.

Our cutlery needs to avoid going through the rigours of the dishwasher, so all we ask is for you to rinse it off and when we are back at LLVH HQ we will clean and polish it.

Please look at our Pinterest page to see additional photographs of what we have available. We can hunt down anything we don’t have that you might want!

To make life easy we charge a set price for each piece of cutlery, but we can offer a discount for larger orders. Please phone or email for information.

Loves Lane Vintage Hire only hires out authentic vintage or antique pieces. The same is true of our cutlery, which all has a history. Every piece will arrive with you hand washed and lovingly polished to show it off to its best advantage on your special table.

You may want to hire a set of our cutlery, for instance Georgian, Beaded or Fiddle, or you may wish to choose the Mix and Match look.  We will be happy to hand pick a selection for you.

All our cutlery is silver plated except for the knives, many of which have bone handles. We have a good variety of interesting cutlery for teatime, many of that comes in boxes.

Discounts will be offered for the hire of larger quantities of cutlery.
