Welcome to The Salavaged Tea Party, the home of decorative hand adorned vintage ceramics. Discarded by others and then found, customised, hand decorated and loved by us; each salvaged piece is unique and beautiful with a quirky touch. Choose from pretty plates, gorgeous cake stands and lovely tea cups to create your own Salvaged Tea Party. They look wonderful as wall art, sweet on a shelf and damn lovely on a dresser.

Whether a treat for yourself or a gorgeous gift for a loved one a hand adorned vintage ceramic is sure to be a treasured possession. Use the lettered plates to make up names and initials for newborns and newlyweds. Look at the pretty plates range for perfect children's presents. Or be perfectly selfish and decorate your own home with cake stands and tea cups adorned with birds, butterflies, bugs and more... All items are fully customisable so please get in touch if you have your own Salvaged Tea Party vision that you would like us to create, we love custom orders!

We trawl junk stalls, charity shops and boot sales to find gorgeous vintage ceramics that are waiting for a new lease of life. Then we create an additional design layer for the plate making the most of the colours, pattern and form of it's previous incarnation. We use vintage, stock and our own images to create this design. The decals are printed on a specialist material, hand cut and placed, water fixed and finished with a fine acrylic varnish spray. The combination of vintage pieces, unique design and hand finishing means that every piece is a true original.
