Tea Cup Pin Cushion, Hand Made, Original Antique Limoges Porcelain Cup And Saucer

This beautiful and practical pin cushion has been made by my extremely talented wife, Diane.

The tea cup and saucer are original antiques from a set of Limoges porcelain.

Each tea cup is unique in its own design and is always a one off.

I have listed this first one and Diane is busily making more which will be listed shortly.

They make brilliant presents for anyone who is interested in sewing or antique French porcelain.

Should you have a particular colour requirement or design please let us know and Diane will try to accommodate you.

Delivery is almost always through the French Postal Service using the Petit Packet Prioritaire system for parcels up to 2 kilos. Above that weight it has to be the Collissimo service and where that is the case the postage is considerably more and this will be noted in the delivery cost.

Should insurance or tracking be required please let me know at the time of purchase and I will get a quote for you. Tracking is standard with Collissimo but an extra with the first service.

We are in rural France and they have many public holidays so although I try to send packages out within three working days of purchase it is not always possible. Occasionally also, snow or bad weather can cause delays.

Post within Europe is usually reasonably quick but can take up to several weeks to the USA or China.

Please note that customs regulations differ from country to country and it is for the buyer to ensure that any customs or other duties levied by their country of residence is paid. I cannot accept any responsibility for that.

It is important to note that insurance will only be paid by the carrier if the customer either refuses the package or inspects it before the deliverer leaves and notes any damage found. If this procedure is not adhered to the carrier will not pay a claim and in those circumstances I cannot be held responsible for any damage or loss discovered after the deliverer has gone.

So if you notice that there is damage to the packaging of any item please refuse the delivery and it will be returned to me at which point I will be able to make a claim on behalf of me and you.


Payment is by PayPal as well as all major credit cards as that gives our customers the maximum protection. Payment should be made at the time of purchase and no items are shipped until paid for.

I am happy to accommodate 'lay away' purchase and the item will be shipped once the final payment is made. Should you require this service please contact me for details.

I try very hard to ensure the accuracy of all descriptions and photographs. In the unlikely event that an item is not as described or photographed I am happy to offer a full refund as soon as the item arrives back with me in the condition in which it left.

Additional return information
Please study the photographs and description careful as I do not accept refunds simply for a change of mind.

Important Notice Concerning Proposed Change to EU Distance Selling Regulations

New rules will shortly come into force in the EU concerning your right to cancel an order up to 14 days from receipt of the item. We have always adhered to the EU rules on distance selling and have decided to implement these new rules immediately without waiting for the legislation to pass the European Parliament.

Accordingly from today you will have the right to return an item any time within 14 days of receipt. A full refund will be made within 14 days of the item arriving back with us in the condition in which it left.

We take great care to ensure that all items are accurately described and photographed and please note that the photographs are an integral part of the description. In the unlikely event that an item is not as described and photographed we will accept the return and pay a full refund, including postage, plus return postage. If the item is returned for any other reason we will provide a full refund including postage but not the return postage.

Additional policies

There are no guarantees with our listings as most are very old. Please take careful note of the descriptions and photographs, do your research where required. I do as much research as I can and where I have information that I think will be helpful to a buyer I will include it in the description. For example if I know that an item is being sold for considerable more than my listing price I will enclose a link to the relevant website.
