A nice collection of 3 antique French coffee cups called BRULÔT. They are thick white porcelain from the late 19th century. One has a beautiful blue linear decoration, one has an orange decoration and the other is orange and peach. The saucers are the original matching pair which is unusual to find. These cups were used in the bistros to drink coffee and Cognac. You can see that it has a hollow bottom. The reason they are so thick is that the customer would set fire to the cognac in the saucer and then mix with the coffee. Fantastic wedding gift.

Initially inspired by the interior at The Mint in Rye (our 15th century holiday let in Rye, East Sussex) and requests to purchase items by clients while staying, we decided to start sourcing and selling so people could do just that.

Based between London and East Sussex we have built up a network of specialist sources that we pull from to create the unique edit that is The Mint in Rye.  We offer a mix of vintage textiles, primitive furniture, curios, first edition books, vintage film posters and antique carved oak.  These are not chosen for their age, but very much for their aesthetic appeal.  The visual still remains true to The Mint interior style, but has broadened to include vintage elements that have the same unique view point.

To view the collection, please contact Barrie on +44 (0)7714 764708.  Dependant on the pieces you are interested in, they may be in East Sussex or in London.
