Dear Mrs Noble

Many thanks for your antique bone china query. As you probably know, Lawleys is a very old and established retailer of fine china in the UK, rather than a producer of china wares.

At one point in their history in the 1950's they purchased various china manufacturers like Ridgways and Adderley. They used these and other makers to commission many own-brand lines.

You own one of those own-brand sets. The value will depend on the age and the rarity and the quality (ie bone china or stoneware etc).

For a professional appraisal, you can visit my page here:

Your set sounds wonderful. Take it to a local dealer - their appraisal service might well be free (or might not).

Many people do not have a reliable local dealer close at hand, so for those people I developed an online expert referral service (click for details).

It is also good to get a second opinion too.

I have tea set, milk jug and sugar bowl. Number 9748. I have no idea of the name other than it is Lawleys Regent Street. Phillips Est 1763.

Early 1900s Service
by: Jen

I have a full tea service given to my grandmother on her marriage in 1902. The rims are gold, then a yellow band with tiny green hearts and below that a red band with inversed tiny white heats, then bordered with two thin gold gold bands. The green stamp is CHINA GLASS LAWLEYS of REGENT STREET LONDON W.E. and hand drawn in black the number 4981 N. A few may have been replaced as they have more of the scroll type stamp and the number is written in gold with the letter S instead of N. I have no intention of getting rid of them(!) but would like any information on Lawleys at that time.
