Just give us a detailed description of the sort of tea sets you are looking for and we will do the rest. We have also located replicas of teasets which customers had wanted. For example, some had wanted the mid 20th Century art deco Villeroy and Boch series, we managed to locate the replicas of this series in the Radius Contemporary series made in China and marketed by Sango Japanese Brand. The format that we provide is stated below:

1. Is the tea set Oriental or western?
2. If Oriental, Japanese, Chinese or Southeast Asian for e.g.?
3. If western, German, British, American for e.g.?
4. Art styles of the teaset for e.g. art deco, earthernware incised, applique tea sets?
5. Any other details like year of manufacture etc.

We are also specialist in selecting tea sets for the authentic feel when serving certain dinners, for e.g. For Peranakan dinners, tea and meals, Pernakan pottery
For the feel of Louis the 15th's opulence, tea cups the match the occasion
For Chinese tea, Yixing pots
For TeoChew Bak Kut Teh dish, TeoChew red clay pots
For the classical British feel, the Jasper series
For the Eastern European feel, we suggest Chinese replicas

Antique Teapot Authentication has a special service for customers. We can authenticate the old teapots in your homes for free. See our authenticator's credentials

Please send us photos and an accurate description of your teapot and we will examine it with our panel of experts.

1) US$25 - email based authentication, more than 100 words
2) US$50 - authentication with more that 100 words, customer to receive an authentication certificate (in printable PDF format via email) issued by with EasternTea header, Prof. Lim Tai Wei signature and his credential.

This form of authentication is non-committal. We can only authenticate to the best of our ability from viewing the photo and it cannot be used an evidence of its value and authenticity. This is due to the limitation placed on the experts by photos. True authentication can only come with examing and touching the piece itself. We hope that customers understand this point. We hope that you can use our service and use it as a rough guide for knowing approximately the kind of teapot that you have. We accept PayPal payment.
