WHY BUY PORTMEIRION FROM JAMES ANTIQUE?
-- We sell mostly Portmeirion and have handled thousands of modern and vintage pieces. We know what to look for.
-- We offer a 100% Guarantee, including return shipping, if an item is not as described.
-- We NEVER offer any Portmeirion dish, plate, or piece for food service that could be unhealthy and has:
. Brown grease or dirt stains (except for shelf wear on a bottom ring)
. 'Dirty' crazing
. Crack, hairline or otherwise
. Man made chips (glazed over factory flaws are common)
. Excessive wear
Anything that has one or more above issues is worth only a small fraction of the same item in undamaged condition. Often, even retired motifs are not worth the cost of shipping.
-- We offer quality items that have been carefully inspected under two lights and soaked in water, if an older piece, looking for hidden flaws.
-- Except for very tiny stacking marks, we describe every bit of use or flaw we see.
-- Buy with confidence!
