As a child growing up it was always a joy visiting my grandmother. Whether it was for a Sunday lunch, casual afternoon tea or special celebration we were welcomed with a beautifully set table adorned with her best china. This is when my love of beautiful old china began. My grandmother passed away in 1994 leaving me with quite a collection and from then, I have collected my own special pieces. Investigating my English genealogy and visiting England has fueled my love of antique collectibles further.
WHAT CAN MEADOWS OF LONGTON DO FOR YOU?
I specialise in the hiring of English china from the periods of 1930 to 1970 with an additional assortment of vintage tableware such as silver and gold cutlery, crystal decanters, whisky glasses and cake servers. I pride myself on sourcing top notch finery, providing good old-fashioned service and paying attention to the details. I aim to ease the frustration of sourcing, matching and buying unique tableware which can often be expensive and unavailable in Australia.
WHO IS OUR COLLECTION SUITABLE FOR?
The DIY bride/ groom / planner who wants to do things their own way.
Creative types who enjoy filling a blank canvas with character and love.
People who would rather spend quality time with friends rather than hours trawling Gumtree trying to find 50 matching gold cake forks (and then be stuck with 50 forks after the event!).
We’re here for those that want to hold an event that is both current and timeless.
Lover of heirloom finery…at a reasonable cost.
For the dreamers of antique opulence, old-world glamour and faded grandeur.
That desire for timeworn appeal in a modern setting.
That historical significance that pulls at our heart strings.
