Description

Proper tea sipping is not for the wimps.
Anyone who thinks tea can be drunk from a mug is an unfortunate, and from styrofoam, a barbarian.
Tea drinking is more than the slurp from a cup. It is a vision. It is a ritual, it is the essence of civilization.
People used to understand that, and fortunately the tide is turning to a new movement for proper tea drinking.
In fact, collecting beautiful tea cups is now a hot trend. In fact, it might even be called a movement.

Why do I share these thoughts with you today, dear reader? Because this Shelley cup and saucer is a good example of all that tea sipping should be. It is that beautiful fine porcelain that is so delicate you can hold it up to the light and see the outer design. It is that magical scalloped shape that Shelley is so loved and sought after for. The details are adorable, such as the ridged design on both the cup and the plate.
It is a lovely, delicate design, which includes a motif on the interior to admire as you raise your cup to you mouth.

This is the Shelley celandine design, and it is in excellent condition. No chips, cracks or crazing.

3.25 across the top,2.5 high, 5.75 wide for saucer.

What goes around, comes around.
Love of beauty and quality from the past is happiness.

shipping is standard post. Not so slow in North America, slow overseas. If you would like faster shipping please convo me. I will combine shipping more than one item for savings.
