What clients say...
"Mel provided a fabulous selection of chinaware for our 20th wedding anniversary and vow renewal. From cups and saucers to beautiful teapots, cake stands and champagne flutes.... everything made the afternoon tea we had for our guests just perfect...thank you Mel for all your help and for also taking the washing up with you!! :)" - Sarah, Bracklesham Bay
"I had the pleasure of meeting Mel when organising my friends baby shower. With a short time frame and little knowledge of vintage crockery Mel couldn’t have been more helpful! She made the ordering process a breeze and made something that seemed quite stressful an enjoyable process! I would highly recommend her for all occasions and will be sure to recommend to my friends and family! Also she delivered to my house! Another huge tick!" - Kylie, Waterlooville
"Thank you for the beautiful vintage china, it was a real pleasure to do business with you. The china was perfect for our afternoon tea; it was a pleasure to use and was complimented by our guests. Thank you for the use of the tablecloths which were also an invaluable addition to the theme." - Sadie, Hambrook
"Duchess was a wonderful company to deal with. Mel was very punctual and all communications were prompt. The china was delivered ahead of time which was a bonus as it meant I could set up early for the baby shower. The china came carefully wrapped and the fact that I didn't need to wash up was a relief after a busy afternoon of hosting tea and cake off the pretty crockery! Thank you so much for a genuine, local and friendly company for a service I could really rely on! You completed the look of our party and made it extra special!" - Polly, Chichester
