Matching China was established over fifteen years ago, as a joint venture between two parents with an interest in china and a son with an interest in electronic commerce. In 2002 we moved into our first premises and launched our first website (which was was reported by BBC Good Homes Magazine to be the most user-friendly among UK china matching companies).
In the very early stages of the business our focus was on sourcing and stocking discontinued china patterns, and to this day we continue to stock a large number of popular discontinued patterns by Wedgwood, Royal Doulton, Royal Albert and others. Within a short time our love of china led us to stock current patterns and giftware too.
Three warehouse moves later, the business is still run by its founders, Isobel and David Bone.
