About MellorWare

Sales 114
On Etsy since 2009

Timeless teaware with a contemporary feel!

I first started my shop by selling my pen and ink drawings, I then developed tea party sets and it's grown from there. The Mellor Ware range includes cake stands, tea towels, aprons and a good old cup and saucer!

Mellor Ware is stocked in Liberty in London, 'Mary' in House of Fraser and a number of independent boutiques in the UK and Europe!

Shop policies

Last updated on February 9, 2011
Here at Mellor Ware, the stories behind my products are just as important to me and the products themselves. I have spent months and months sourcing my China to ensure I'm supporting local, UK based tradesmen and women, and not supporting third world sweatshops. Wherever possible I do everything myself, by hand and with love. The decals for the china are printed in a pottery in stoke-on-trent by a perfectionist named Jason, and I fire my china in a Kiln in Formby owned by Sarah (who runs a paint-your-own-pottery place).
The fabrics I use for my soft furnishings are purchased second-hand from charity shops to make sure my money is going to a good cause, or from the remnants section in my local haberdashery shop. Nothing goes to waste in my studio and when things do have to be thrown away I make sure everything that can be recycled, is.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
If you receive an item and you are not happy with it for any reason, or it has arrived broken, please contact me so I can help rectify any issues. Each case is unique and I want nothing more than for you to be totally over the moon with your purchase.
However, due to digital photography and differing screen resolutions, I can not be held responsible for complaints regarding exact colour matches to the image on your screen, sorry. If you would like more information regarding the colour match of any of my items (especially fabrics) please get in touch and I can always send you a swatch of fabric free of charge for you to match up in your home.
I ask that all payments are received within 7 days of confirming your purchase. International buyers can pay through PayPal and UK based customers can pay me by cheque or PayPal, whatever suits you.
It is the customers prerogative to be able to change your mind before making the payment, just let me know. However, after I have received your payment cancellations can not be made.
For each item there are always lots of options for postage; insured, recorded, trackable, next day, land, signed for.... Please don't hesitate to get in touch and I can quote the method of postage that will suit your needs best.
Additional policies and FAQs
As I design and make everything by hand, I can produce custom, bespoke and personal items for your enjoyment. Soft furnishings can be made with your own fabric, embroidered with names, favourite animals or pets. China can be designed just for you, whether you see an image on one item and would like it on something else, or if you would like a whole range designing just for you and your individual tastes just get in touch and we can discuss your options further.
