It’s Not Location, Location, Location When You Are Buying Antique China and Porcelain - It’s Condition, Condition, Condition
When buying porcelain, pottery, tableware, and decorative items, including collectible items, condition is one of the most important factors that contributes to an object’s desirability and, or course, its value. Whilst a little wear and tear is acceptable on a piece of furniture that has survived the decades, and often the centuries, the same cannot always be said of antique porcelain and china. Limited wear and tear is fine, of course, but if the item is actually chipped or cracked then we appreciate it is not in such high demand and we are always very careful to point out any such flaws on pieces that we offer for sale.
Our buyers try to avoid such pieces but the scarcity of some items makes it impossible to rule them out completely and, so long as the intrinsic value of a piece can stand it, most items can be effectively repaired with only the truly expert eye being able to detect the work having been carried out. Repairs can be expensive though so we always think very carefully before making such a decision.
If we are aware that an item has been repaired, no matter how well, we will always point it out in our product descriptions so that you can decide with full knowledge of what you are buying. You should also take note of the very detailed and comprehensive galleries of photographs that we provide with each item that we list for sale. Don’t forget that you are welcome to call us and speak to our in-house team if you need any questions answered about your intended purchase.
We want you to be pleased with everything you buy from Regent Antiques and we are available during opening hours to do that for you in person or by email as required - we always aim to answer your email queries with 24 working hours.
Please Try to Pay a Visit to Our Showroom in Person and Take a Look at our Antique China, Antique Porcelain and Vintage Pieces for Yourself
If you see an item of antique porcelain or perhaps an English Victorian dinner service, or maybe something more contemporary that you would like to consider, please be aware that our specialist team will pack it very carefully and ship it to almost any destination worldwide. We would however request that you obtain a shipping quotation before making a purchase, quoting the unique reference number on the item’s description page, unless you are located in the UK mainland where we are able to ship your purchases to you completely free of charge.
Our North London showrooms are open to the public for viewing every weekday between the hours of 10am to 5pm and please also be aware that we open occasionally on Saturdays to assist those for whom a weekday visit is normally out of the question - see the homepage of this site for our latest opening hours including our latest Saturday opening arrangements. You don’t need an appointment to view our antique porcelain and china but if you need to speak to one of our experts then it is worth calling in advance to make sure that there is someone on hand as the team are often out of town on buying trips.
Our showroom is very easy to find and is located close to rail and public transport links, including Manor House tube station on the Piccadilly Line which is a stone’s throw away. You will always find many examples of beautiful antique porcelain and china on display but if you are travelling to see a particular item please call first to make sure that it is still available to view as the website is not updated in real time.
If you cannot visit the showroom and you have questions about any of our antique porcelain and antique china pieces, or indeed any other item or items, then you are welcome to contact us by telephone or email using the contact details found at the top of every product description page. Please also quote the item reference when contacting us.
Please be sure to check our notes as to the condition and dimensions of the antique china items you wish to buy before purchasing and use the photographs to satisfy yourself regarding the item’s condition.
