Lovers of Blue & White is a specialist mail-order and internet business founded in 1995 by Andrew and Olwyn Pye. Initially concentrating on early 19th Century blue printed transferware (hence our name and still our speciality), the business branched out over the years into other colours, 20th Century collectable china, out of production tableware and new china from leading brands. We are official stockists of new china by Spode, Portmeirion, Burleigh and Churchill. We offer Burleigh's entire current range and many of their discontinued patterns and items and carry large stocks for immediate despatch.

We supply any British maker or pattern made from 1780 to the present day, including all the major names such as Spode, Wedgwood, Doulton, Masons and Woods plus the smaller specialist makers such as Burgess & Leigh, Ford & Sons and Keeling. We offer friendly, expert advice and help to customers, drawing on our extensive library and archives if you do not see what you want please ask and we will do our best to find it.

We are active members of Friends of Blue, Transferware Collectors Club, International Willow Collectors and numerous other societies and collector clubs.

Lovers has an historic home set in open countryside close to the village of Steeple Morden, Cambridgeshire, England (about 45 miles due north of London). Our William IV farmhouse with its extensive period barns and stables offer a family home and base for our business. The buildings may date from 1836, but with the latest technology we meet the needs of our thousands of customers and keep track of our vast stock of china. We ship to 59 different countries!

Our website carries our entire inventory at any moment and is updated every day. We send regular mailings to those who wish to receive them. 



We welcome visitors to our showroom, although as we do not have formal hours of business, we suggest a quick telephone call or email before setting off to avoid a wasted journey. 

We are a farm complex in open country and the full geographic address is Lovers of Blue & White, The Barnyard, Station Road, Steeple Morden, Royston, Hertfordshire, SG8 0RN. The post code SG8 0RN is unique to us and most sat-nav systems will deliver you to our door. If you prefer maps enter our post code into Bing Maps or Google MapsIf you know the area, we are between Baldock and Royston and exactly 1.5 miles north of the A505 on the way to the village of Steeple Morden; easily accessible from the A1, A14, M11 and the more rural A1198!

Top interior designer William Stubbs of Houston, Texas visited us a while back as part of his Moment of Luxury US TV series and posted this video on YouTube. Also on the Web, find us on the US based Set Your Table, where you will find our article "Wanted - Blue Willow in any Color" and our own Asiatic Pheasants Pattern site, with the history and makers of this traditional design. On our other site Hudsons Antiques there are histories of the Podmore, Walker & Co., Rogers and Hall factories and their patterns.

Much of our business comes by word of mouth and we are mentioned regularly as recommended suppliers in English magazines such as Homes & Antiques, Country Living, Period Living, Good Housekeeping, AGA Magazine, The English Home and Country Homes and newspapers including The Financial Times, Daily Express, Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail. US publications Country Home, Washington Post, Victoria Magazine and Architectural Digest amongst others have featured us.
