ITEM: When describing Shelley the words'traditional, elegance, delicate and pretty' often come to mind and this extensive 29-piece china tea set set in wonderful condition is a perfect example of why that is. Everything you'll need is here for a traditional English afternoon tea, including a 6+cup tea pot (very rare), side plates, larger salad plates and a large'eared' serving plate, for cake or sandwiches etc. We can also include a drip saucer for the milk jug... A fine detail perhaps but a nice touch of refinement. All are modelled in delicate English fine bone china. The tea set is decorated in the ever popular and much collected'Wild Flowers' pattern with a pastel blue trim and the backstamps match. Like so many of the Shelley patterns it is evocative of an English Summer's day, offering a taste of the countryside rather than the traditional cottage garden. The pastel blue trim complements a theme of bright and lavish traditional English wild flowers found in meadows and on grass verges. DETAILS: The tea set comprises...
1 x tea pot (6+ cups). 6 x Richmond shape footed cups measuring approx. 3.5in/9cm across the rim and standing 2.5in/6.5cm tall. 6 x side plates 6 x salad plates 1 x eared serving plate 1 x milk jug + drip saucer 1 x sugar bowl. Backstamp : The style of main Shelley back stamp, common to all the pieces, dates it to between 1940 and 1966 and the pattern number is 13668 and all carry the additional fushia stamp with the name of the pattern'Wild Flowers'.
Condition: This is a surviving example of early post-War Shelley and probably 60+ years old. It has obviously been well looked-after because it remains in remarkably good condition and there is little if any evidence of use... It's probably spent most of its life in a display cabinet.
It retains its bright colouring and healthy glaze and it's a wonderful bonus and very rare to have a teapot in excellent condition because they frequently suffer damage to spouts and lids. It has developed out of a shared passion for 20th Century Design and in particular the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods and the exciting so-called'Retro' period of the 1950s, 60s and 70s. We are enthusiastic collectors and everything we sell has been hand-picked by ourselves at auctions and car boots etc based on its appeal and interest and current trends in collectables. It has been reassuring to discover that what we find and like has an appeal to many other people all over the World and creates a useful link for collectors.
