Thus, nailing the right kind of vintage tea set and vintage coffee cups is an essential part of highlighting your unique sense of style.

Ranging from fun-loving vintage Moomin products to the very best vintage mugs from Iittala and Arabia, our pre-owned gems are guaranteed to make your table setting come alive.

Finish off the set with time-honoured classics 

Easy to spot thanks to its distinctively long handle, the Ego cup by Iittala has enchanted design lovers ever since its introduction in 1998. Designed by Stefan Lindfors, the intriguing shape of the stackable Ego cup is unlike any other, as its play on balance and gravity is sure to make you look twice. Especially after being discontinued in 2014, the well-proportioned Ego range – including the Ego coffee cup, Ego breakfast cup and Ego espresso cup, along with their respective saucers – has become a sought-after dishware favourite. 

Designed by Ulla Procopé for Arabia, the Ruska tableware collection has made a long-lasting impact on the Finnish design landscape. After arousing great interest at the Milan Triennial in 1960 with its initial pieces, the uniquely stylish Ruska series expanded to around 40 items in the 1960s and 1970s. Containing the likes of the Ruska coffee cup and Ruska tea cup, the endearingly earthy appearance of Arabia’s Ruska stoneware range is thanks to its mottled brown glaze, which gives each piece an individual, artisanal appearance – guaranteeing that no two items in Arabia’s Ruska line are alike.

There’s a vintage cup for every moment

We doubt anyone loves wake-up calls at the crack of dawn, but vintage coffee mugs have a way of making early mornings easier – combining timeless aesthetics with a welcome dose of caffeine. Whether you’re on the lookout for a vintage tea set for entertaining or the perfect retro cup to treat yourself, you’re bound to find refined vintage tea cups and endearing vintage mugs in a wide range of colours, shapes and sizes.

With a little help from Franckly, it’s easy to refresh your vintage cup selection according to the season.

When it's time to bring some festive cheer to your home, there’s nothing quite like vintage mugs in warm hues to boost the holiday mood.
