Plate Vintage China Rental

Dishing It Out

plate vintage china rental chicago!

Shannon Spellman and Sarah Burrows know how to dish it out.

In addition to planning their weddings (taking place a month apart at Salvage One), they’re busy launching genius vintage china rental concept Plate.

Inspired by Salvage One’s dusty oddities, the duo began collecting mismatched table settings to use at their receptions. They now own enough china to service 500, and it’s available to rent for any occasion.

Make no mistake: This stuff is for real — think Limoges, Wedgwood, Haviland, and Noritake. Favorite finds include Paragon plates (marked by appointment to HM the Queen and HM Queen Mary) and painted pieces from Bavaria and Occupied Japan. Everything is in tip-top condition.

Standard rentals include cups, saucers, and dinner, salad, dessert, and bread-and-butter plates. Serving pieces and soup and berry bowls are also available.

Naturally, Spellman and Burrows are standing at each other’s nuptials.

These ladies are our cup of tea.
