China Hire

Cups & Saucers china collection has evolved over years of searching for the most charming and elegant pieces. We only include Vintage English fine bone chinaware in our collections, and above all pride ourselves on the quality of our collection.

We have an eclectic mix of pieces from Royal Albert, Royal Doultan, Shelley, Tuscan, Paragon, Colclough, Royal Crown Derby and more!

Check out our “Tea for Ten” and “Tea for Twenty” packages which are offered at discounted prices for those bigger occasions. We have individual item prices which is available to view in the ‘Prices’ tab below.

Cups & Saucers can cater for any specific number you require (up to ~250 guests in total).
We also try to accommodate any favourite china makers and/or colours!

We are located in Sydney, operating out of the Inner-West. Items can be picked up from here, or we can deliver to anywhere in Sydney. Cost of delivery is $20 for drop-off and $20 for pick-up after use. We do not send our china via postage, sorry!

If you are out of area, please contact us as special arrangements can be made.

Cups & Saucers do not have a storefront, therefore, we send photo inventories to each of our clients. This way, our client can check they’re happy with each and every piece in their collection prior to delivery.

We’re more than happy to swap pieces in and out until we have the perfect look for you!

Check out our navy, crimson and gold range, featuring designs such as Royal Albert’s Heirloom and Imari- for a richer, bolder palette.

Items are generally hired out for 48 hours at a time, but we can be flexible if you get in touch.
