Have you some mismatched cups and saucers?
Well ceramics designer Richard Brendon has scoured antique shops in London to find a selection of orphaned saucers.
One of his oldest is a Derby piece dating back to 1800.
He also has some delicate teacups gilded in platinum and gold to go with them. They cost £85 for a cup and saucer.
We have some white china with gilded handles and initials painted on them, I think I should get them valued. I do use them when friends come for afternoon tea but I have been very naughty and popped them in the dishwasher afterwards.
