SOPHISTICATED BABY BLUE SHELLEY TEACUP, SAUCER AND CAKE PLATE

RESERVED RESERVED RESERVED RESERVED RESERVED

Most likely made during the early 1950s, this lovely teacup trio was manufactured in England by the famous Shelley China company whose origins date back to the early 1800s - when it was then known as the Foley Potteries.

Simplicity is the key design feature of this delicate trio. The palest sky blue colour wash distinguishes the set while its clean lines, set gently off with a little golden scalloping around the cup's rims and plates edges, adds an alluring and subtle finesse.

The trio make a stunning vintage set, ideal to use at a special tea party. Their heart-stoppingly simple but shamelessly pretty looks also make them fabulous to display in an armoire or kitchen dresser.

The underneath of the cup, saucer and cake plate are back stamped with the marks "Shelley", "Fine Bone China" and "England", confirming they are Shelly items created between 1945 and 1966 when this particular mark was in use.

This elegant trio is in very good vintage condition with no chipping, fracturing or cracking; with just some small signs of wear to the gilt on one edge of the saucer and tiny spots of kiln dust in the base of the cup.

Vital Statistics:

Height of tea cup: 5.8 cm

Width of teacup excluding handle: 8.9 cm

Width of saucer: 14 cm

Width of cake plate: 16 cm

The Fairy Tale Bit: A duck egg features in a fairytale called "The Heartless Giant" which tells the story of a giant who loses his humanity while a spell which caused his heart to be retained within a duck's egg remains intact.
