Whether you have china that’s been passed down for generations or a special glassware set that you’ve coveted from an antique store, you know how valuable these items can be. Some people pull out these special dishes on holidays like Christmas and Easter; for others these are everyday staples at the dinner table. With that said, there’s no worse feeling than accidentally breaking a plate, bowl, or glass — especially if the set is rare or discontinued and can’t be easily found at your local shopping center. If that sounds familiar, then you’ll want to check out Replacements, LTD.

As the name suggests, Replacements, LTD is the world’s largest retailer of china, crystal, silverware and more. The brand has a 500,000-square-foot warehouse with inventory that changes daily from vintage tableware to more modern placements that can be used in the home.

With more than 450,000 different patterns (including discontinued china patterns) and 11 million unique pieces, it’s more than likely that Replacements, LTD will have the broken antique dish or china piece you’re looking for, which can be delivered to your doorstep with the click of a button.

Where Does the Inventory Come From?

Replacements, LTD works with more than 500 suppliers around the country who are constantly scouring estate sales, auctions, antique stores, and anywhere else they're able to find the pieces shoppers might need. A portion of inventory comes to them directly from major brands, and they also purchase select items from anyone interested in selling to them. Replacements, LTD does not have a private label, however, recently partnered with Fiesta Tableware Company on a plate series, Fiesta Flowers which is exclusively available at Replacements, LTD.

How Does It Work?

On the website, you can browse through china dinnerware sets, crystal glassware, silver flatware, collectibles, estate jewelry, and specials. In each category, you’ll be given the option to browse by brand name, top brands, and popular patterns.

For an even easier search, Replacements, LTD has a special visual search tool on their website where customers can upload a picture of the piece they are trying to replace or a set they are looking for. For the best results, the brand suggests using a front shot of the item against a solid background.

What Else Does Replacements, LTD Offer?

If you aren’t looking to add new pieces to your silverware collection, but want to refresh existing pieces, Replacements, LTD offers restoration and repair services to clean, polish, and repair many different types of silver.

You can also sell your china to Replacements, LTD if you’re looking to get rid of it in exchange for new pieces. Pricing for collections and services varies based on the type, set, and brand, but prices typically range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars.

What’s the Return Policy?

Worried about ordering china through the mail? Replacements, LTD participates in a rigorous inspection process where pieces are cleaned and wrapped by packers using safe methods developed in conjunction with our shippers. And if you’re not a fan of your purchase, pieces are covered by a 30-day no-questions-asked return policy.
