Vintage Shelley China teacup/tea cup, saucer, and dessert plate in the highly collectible "Melody" pattern. Shelley is known not only for its fantastic designs and patterns but also the shape of its cups. This shape is called, "Ripon." Each piece is in perfect MINT condition and is one of Shelley's most sought after patterns. Chintz is an umbrella term used to describe, usually floral, a pattern that covers the entire surface of a piece. Usually chintz is floral. This example is probably one of the prettiest as it is floral chintz on a mint green background with pastel flower blooms in different pastel colors all over. The subtle background has a pattern on it if you look closely. This set has absolutely no damage at all, no cracks, nicks, hairlines or crazing. Each piece is Green stamped on the back Shelley, fine bone china with a colorful stamp designating the Melody pattern. Each piece is also hand numbered,12943 in gold. This set is a standard size tea cup and saucer, the dessert plate measures 6 1/4" across.
