About us

Devon Vintage China hire was founded by Jan Davies and she has now retired. Following five highly successful years building a fabulous collection of high quality fine English china. Available for hire in Devon, Dorset, Cornwall, Somerset, Bath and Bristol. Having planned to have a nice quiet retirement. Jan’s daughter has just delivered a new grand daughter. As she only lives two doors away, I think Jan will still find herself very busy.

To ensure Jan’s high standards of quality and service are preserved. Supplying vintage china hire for a wedding, birthday party, or corporate event. We have now added her wonderful collection to our stock. While wishing Jan all the best in her retirement. Devon Vintage China is now a trading name and part of South West Event Hire Ltd. It is an independently owned two family company based in Exeter, Devon. Which has built up a reputation for providing high quality catering equipment hire, furniture hire. Outstanding customer service to the South West counties.

Our Somerset base was in the Wedding warehouse in Martock, near Yeovil. Unfortunately the owners of that collection of wedding retailers have decided to close that showroom. I am currently looking for an alternative showroom in Yeovil area. However, do not worry we are highly committed to the Somerset area. Devon Vintage China delivery charges will still be based on the distance you are from our Martock base. Alternatively  the Exeter warehouse, which ever is the closest to you. If you would like to visit us, you will be very welcome. Our doors are always open. Well Monday to Friday 0800 – 1700 excluding bank holidays, so just give us a call and book your visit.
