Hi, welcome to my shop, I specialize in antique porcelain including Nippon, Limoges, Royal Bayreuth, RS Prussia and more! I am particularly drawn to Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Paris Apt, and Shabby Cottage styles as well as the elegant and whimsical. Ornate floral patterns, rich jeweled colors and heavily gilded accents are some of my favorite themes, but I also appreciate the romantic look of florals executed in soft pastels married together with delicate gold tracery which reminds me of intricate lace.

In addition to cherished porcelain, I also offer a curated assortment of vintage linens ranging from tasteful window treatments, classic table covers and cuddly soft bedding. My favorite designers to feature are Ralph Lauren and Waverly.

I love to combine all of these elements in my shop to provide you with a wide assortment of options to add to your collection. Beautify your home with my unique treasures.

Let me be your source for antique mismatched or replacement china. A table set with an assorted mix of antique dinnerware is very appealing to the eye. Mismatching china sets are an absolute must for a vintage themed wedding, combining a large variety of colors, patterns and styles to create a truly unique experience. The different crockery patterns will add a dainty touch to the reception tables.

Welcome to Angela's Trinkets & Treasures!

Pour yourself a cup of tea and take a gander at my little shop. My name is Angela, I am a mom to three kitties, I enjoy the whimsical things in life and making primitive and shabby (but chic) crafts. I love scouring antique shops, thrift stores and estate sales for unique vintage porcelain, but sharing these treasures with you is my greatest joy.

This is my first etsy shop and I couldn't have done it without my sister Grace. My older sister, Grace has two etsy shops of her own "perfumefetish" and "tresorsduboudoir". Grace is a longtime collector and dealer of antiques. She specializes in antique perfume bottles, boudoir items, antique lace and clothing purses, shoes, vanity accessories, antique jewelry, French, Art Deco, Art nouveau, shabby cottage styles and general Victoriana, but she has also been a collector of Nippon, RS Prussia, German bisque figurines and Limoges for over 20 years. Grace uses her experience with fine porcelain and general antiques to assist me in my shop. Her principle duties here include sourcing of new inventory, advanced research of china and linen patterns and manufacturers, writing up all descriptions for listings, assigning competitive but affordable pricing, excellent customer service, photography and sage advice. She is currently enrolled in the Asheford Institute of Antiques to obtain her certificate in personal property appraisals.

Grace and I are both members of the International Nippon Collector's Club and Grace has been a member of the International Perfume Bottle Association.

My sister and I both enjoy spending quality time with each other and tasting different teas from around the world. Grace has introduced me to her favorites, such as Darjeeling, Lapsang Souchong, Congou, Oolong, Assam, Singlo and Russian Caravan. It is such fun to use dainty antique tea cups and tea pots, chocolate pots and fancy dishes for our Victorian style tea parties. We think some of you do too, so we try to provide you with an assortment of pretty china to add beauty to your home.

Now that you know me and my shop a little bit better, let me be your source for antique mismatched or replacement china. A table set with an assorted mix of antique dinnerware is very appealing to the eye. Mismatching china sets are an absolute must for a vintage themed wedding, combining a large variety of colors, patterns and styles to create a truly unique experience. The different crockery patterns will add a dainty touch to the reception tables.

Frequently asked questions
Where do you get your inventory?

We are constantly scouring estate sales, auctions, antique stores, and anywhere else we're able to find the pieces you need. A small portion of our inventory comes to us directly from anyone interested in selling to us.

Tips for hand washing "antique" or older china:

Line the bottom of your sink with a dish towel or rubber mat (this will provide protection). Fill the sink with tepid to warm water. Add a mild detergent (no lemon scented detergents or products containing bleach! They contain acid that is harmful to china surfaces & finishes). Wash one dish at a time, & swing the spout away from the wash area (to prevent chipping or scratching). Do not use abrasive pads or steel wool to remove debris.

Remember that china is made to use. Long-term storage in areas where temperature & humidity is not controlled can have adverse effects on the glaze of china pieces causing the glaze to become brittle & possibly crack.

General Notes

Heat - China, both casual and formal, should be kept away from exposure to extreme heat, including open flames or naked stove-top burners, unless otherwise marked.

Trim - Tableware with metallic trims should never be used in the microwave, this includes both gold or platinum trims. To remove tarnish from platinum trim, gently use silver cleaner, and then wash the item before using. Be careful not rub too hard as the trim can be rubbed off.

The best way to enjoy your fine china is to use it regularly!

How to Store Your Antique China

When stacking china for storage, place a cushioned layer between each piece for protection.

Use china cushions or place a piece of flannel, felt, a coffee filter, or a napkin between the pieces. Always lift items off a stack, don't slide them, since this can cause scratching.

Stack cups no more than two high, or hang mugs separately on a rack, but only if they're not antique & have not had their handles repaired. Stacking cups can weaken the rim, and cause cracking or chipping. Cups, bowls and mugs should be stored rim side up, to prevent chipping of this most fragile area

Avoid stacking pieces that have handles if possible. Be careful when storing china items with lids, since these can slide off and fall, especially on high shelves.

Displaying Fancy China

Display your fancy decorative plates on your wall using plate hangers or shelves. When you display plates upright on shelves you want to make sure they don't fall over and break. Whether you are putting them up directly on the back of the shelf or you are using plate easels, an extra step of using a dab of museum putty to secure the plate to the shelf or easel, will keep it from falling over easily.

When displaying in a china cabinet, be sure you aren't crowding dishes against one another as this can cause the rims to get chipped.

Using Your Antique China

Take care of your antique treasures. Whether they've cost you a small fortune or handed down to you by a thoughtful family member, it's good to keep your dinnerware & serving pieces in top form. I love setting a nice table with a mix of old & new.

Do not put any antique china in the microwave or dishwasher.

Before using, run the plates & serving pieces under warm water in your sink, then dry them off right before using them for hot food or you risk cracking them from the sudden heat of the food. Do not be tempted to warm them by placing in an oven or a dishwasher, the heat from both of these sources may be too hot for your delicate pieces.

Immediately after using, soak your dishes in warm, soapy water, and gently hand wash.

Do you offer combined shipping?

Yes, as a courtesy to my buyers, I will do so as long as I feel it is safe to ship multiple items in one box. Large orders may result in several boxes for safety. It is my policy to refund customers any shipping overages that can occur.

Are your prices firm?

Prices in my shop are firm to protect my investments, but I usually offer special monthly sales to help customers save and I try to combine multiple purchases to help save customers even more money on shipping costs.

Do you accept returns or exchanges?

No. In the rare possibility that a case is opened, and etsy favors the buyer, I expect to receive the merchandise back in the same condition it was sent in. Buyer must use the same packing materials and boxes and send the merchandise back to me within 14 days of the closing of the case. I will furnish return labels to facilitate the return process.

I have antique dinnerware (or porcelain) to sell. Do you purchase these items?

Yes, if you are located within the tri-state area of New Jersey, northeastern or southeastern Pennsylvania and Delaware (even some parts of northeastern Maryland), I am willing to purchase your items. Please send me a message thru etsy messages and send me photos and reasonable prices so I can see you what you have. Please note that I am not looking for damaged items.
