It started as a personalised gift...
An independently owned and family run business, we specialise in a truly unique range of home and giftware, designed to add charm and intrigue to your life and home. We have a strong passion for beautiful vintage fine bone china alongside a love of quirky, decorative illustration combined to create one of a kind pieces.
Made as a gift for my best friends wedding
I wanted to give a gift that was both beautiful and unique which I had struggled to find on the high street. I had a huge collection of stunning vintage bone china - which I had collected over the years- so decided to ‘up-cycle’ some of it by hand to create the perfect gift. Following some fantastic feedback and admiration of the piece, I took the leap into selling my designs online.
I still hand design vintage pieces of Bone China, check out my unique range here.
We're truly humble with the response we've had, gathering press acclaim in the UK and internationally as well as multiple awards. We now collaborate with and supply companies such as John Lewis, Liberty London, Anthropologie and Fenwicks, and we want to take our brand even further.
We're still a small independent family-run business, passionately believing in creating truly unique and original pieces that delight and inspire our fantastic customers. Yvonne continues to hand-illustrate and market Yvonne Ellen, whilst brother-in-law Tim helping to run operations!
We're Really Passionate About Crouzon Syndrome Charity
We support the Face Value campaign at Great Ormond Street Hospital because it's dear to our heart. We hope this could help research into Crouzon Syndrome, a rare genetic condition that causes the craniofacial bones to fuse prematurely. The hospital is full of remarkable children whose bravery & strength touches everyone.
GOSH transforms the health and wellbeing of every little patient.
