We’ve chosen vintage cups for this week’s Creative Collections post.

We often come across odd cups or part sets when we’re out & about. There’s certainly no need to leave them behind because it’s not a complete service. A cupboard full of mismatched crockery for day to day use looks great – or can form a fabulous shelf or wall display.

We’ve been lucky enough to have had a couple of these Dolly Days coffee sets since we’ve been trading. We picked up the first one in a charity shop in Bexhill-on-Sea about 8 years ago – before we even had a shop!

We sold it in 2008 to a lovely lady who bought it as a present. Here’s the lovely story she told us:

It was the first set that my grandparents bought…

vintage orange Burleigh Orbit cup & saucer | H is for Home

Wow!! How about this for an eye-popping bit of orange Op Art loveliness?

vintage orange Burleigh Orbit cup maker's mark | H is for Home

This cup & saucer is from the Orbit range produced by Burleigh in the 1960s. It’s superb and quite uncharacteristic of their usual output which is normally very traditional. Someone must have had a rush of blood to the head (or taken LSD) that week. It’s quite a rare pattern and doesn’t appear for sale often.
