Choose the perfect china

All our china is made from clay and kiln-fired for durability. Except for pieces with special trims, everything is dishwasher safe. Below are a few options to consider when choosing your perfect china.

EarthenwareStrong and practical, perfect for everyday. Its cream colour and low firing temperatures allow for designed pieces.
StonewareTougher than earthenware and chip resistant. Ideal for heavy use and can often go into the oven to temperatures of up to 250°C.
TerracottaUses a clay with a rich body colour giving the characteristic base colour, and has a low glaze firing allowing bright coloured glazes. Porous body allows for good thermal expansion and contraction properties making it an ideal body for cookware such as tagines and roasters.
PorcelainDelicate yet strong. Carefully selected clays give whiteness and translucency. It can often go from oven to table.
Fine china The synthetic bone ash used in fine china makes it a more affordable alternative to bone china whilst maintaining the benefits - strength, translucency & delicacy.
Bone china Bone china is made from 40% bone ash. This makes strong yet thin and delicate pieces which are microwave, dishwasher* and oven safe making each piece ideal for everyday use, not just formal.

Q & As

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little espresso cups These espresso cups & saucers are wonderful value for money. They are modern and stylish and coordinate with any crockery pattern or style. They are good to drink from as they are manufactured from bone china. I recommend them to you. 05 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely cups and saucers. Very pleased with quality and design of these cups and saucers, the handles on the cups are wide and not fiddly to pick up! Also I tested them before purchase at the nespresso counter to ensure they could hold a double expresso comfortably and can confirm that they can! 07 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Espresso Cups. There are so many espresso cups on the market now and John Lewis has a really good selection, but when I saw these, it was a 'must have' situation, exactly what I was looking for. They are just perfect, lovely design, easy to hold, nice fine china. A good size for espresso too. 07 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Delightful Espresso Cups Love everything about these stylish espresso cups. Packaged well and would make a really nice gift too. 24 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Stylish and cups look good on their own Just the right size for a large black coffee from my Nespresso machine. The cups are a little wobbly when carried on the saucers, so I prefer to place saucers on the table and carry the cups over. The cups look good used as mugs too. They are very stylish in their design and bright white. Fit well in the dishwasher. A good price 30 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Something I have been searching for... Spot on, in fact the style and quality of the cup and saucers are exactly what I have been searching for some time. I can't be alone, as they are sold out and I now wait, with fingers crossed, that they will be restocked. 25 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylishly chic and inexpensive I bought these as demitasse cups because my old china dinner service didn't have any after-dinner coffee cups. The plain but stylish white china went well with my patterned china set, and I have since also used them for mid course amuse bouche soup. A great buy! 22 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elegant An elegant, clean white set of cups - and not overpriced. 31 December 2012
