Antique Children's China Tea Sets -

Days long ago children actually had their tea parties with real china tea sets. It is not surprising that it is a rarity to find one in good condition today. This is the first I have seen made by Haviland Limoges France. The stamp dates it to the late 1800’s.

At the turn of the century children learned social behavior at a tea party with their dolls. Antique Children’s China Tea Sets were similar to those used by the adults and scaled to fit child sized hands.

Charles Allerton & Sons Staffordshire England were well known for their large variety of transferware type children’s china in the late 1800’s.

Children’s China Tea Sets were also made by many of the early English White Ironstone potters in their well known shapes. These potters were just as detailed in the potting of their miniature sets as they were in the normal sized ironstone pieces.

Antique Children's China Tea Sets are highly collectible and tend to be quite costly.
