Holly Lane Antiques has been selling antique china on Ebay for eight years. We spend a part of the year on the East Coast and part on the West Coast and also participate in Antiques Shows in both areas. Recently we decided to make our lovely antique treasures available at an online store at Antique Arts.com.
Antique English White Ironstone is our newest passion and we have a large collection of it available with an emphasis on ewers and pitchers. We will also display several pedestal compotes and covered tureens and teapots along with a variety of ironstone molds and platters. White Ironstone was introduced in England early in the 19th century by the Staffordshire potters. Today it is prized by collectors for its attractive shapes and durability. Antique white ironstone has become quite desirable among decorators as well as collectors and is often pictured in home decorating magazines. A stunning collection of ewers was pictured on the cover of Architectural Digest a few years ago.
Antique Haviland Limoges is a speciality of ours and we have a very large ever changing collection available with an emphasis on the Haviland patterns with pink roses and gold trim since they are currently the most popular and sought after. Perfect for springtime, we are presently featuring pieces in the Meadow Visitors pattern. We also maintain a request list for buyers looking for that special piece or Schleiger pattern.
Holly Lane Antiques offers other collectible china such as English Transferware and Flow Blue. We round out our collections with vintage silver pieces, depression era glass, and vintage linens.
Since we spend time on both coasts we are always finding wonderful treasures to add to our collections.
We are members of White Ironstone China Association, Haviland Collectors International Foundation,and Transferware Collectors Club. These
