HJC Royal Vale Longton (M 3700) Query: I had a tea set from my aunt but there are a couple of damaged items.

I have 6 plates 5 cups and 5 saucers from the HJC Royal Vale Longton England reference M 3700 range.

Can't seem to find any reference on the net to the M 3700.

Am looking to purchase another cup and saucer to complete the set and also looking to value the set if able to complete.

Would appreciate some help in finding a site or outlet where I could possibly get the additional pieces etc. and also look at

Thanks in anticipation

Hi Susan

Thanks for your query about HJC Royal Vale Longton (M 3700). I will endeavor to help you with your search to complete you Royal Vale collection. By the way, my home town as a child was Penarth in South Wales, not too far from you.

I have published written instructions on how search for china replacements, both on specialist websites and online auctioneers in my China Replacement page. Go to:

There you will find instruction on the best way to achieve what you want - to complete your HJC Royal Vale Longton collection. I show you how to go direct to a deep level eBay search using the link provided.

I also review top China Replacement sites UK and US (the best site by far is American, so you might want to contact them - I noticed they had HJC Royal Vale Longton patterns 3701, 3705 and 3775 listed, but not 3700. You could send them photos and they will publish your HJC Royal Vale Longton pattern in their online catalog in order to assist with your search).

or alternatively, they can buy a fun and interesting ebook with all the tips and tricks of the pros called 'How To Buy & Sell Antiques For Fun & Profit'. Check it out here:

Hope this helps, happy searching!

HJC set in an ornate design stamp
by: Anonymous

On the top of the stamp Royal Vale China HJC inside an ornate design under that it says longton outside of the design stamp it says England.My set of cups,saucers and plates look like it could be gold leaf trimming white based mostly black reds and greens. The design looks as if it could be from the twenties but then again what do I know.Happy to find another named pottery in my collection.

I have a square cake plate and sugar basin, only,
the pattern is basically white with a ring inside and out of gold leaf bands between which are apples and cherries, a black triangle thing and what looks like half a daisy in yellows, orangey red and a bit of green leaf in the fruit segments. I do believe my Mum bought these before she was married in 1938 in the Buxton area.

The Sugar Bowl has the number 116 in gold leaf, and two little green lines, almost like speech marks to the left under the number.

I cant find any reference to this set at all.
Any ideas. thanks

I just happen to have a cup and saucer, Royal Vale China, beautiful condition. It is the Longton pattern 3705. Does Susan still need a cup and saucer?

by: Sue T

thank you for your response regarding my square plate and sugar bowl, I really was just curious about the pattern. Must be honest and say I am not a collector. Thank you anyway.
