Description

#17-189

Vintage Shelley cake plate in the Dainty Shape. Made by the Shelley Company in England in the period from 1940 to 1966. Gold trim on edges and handles. In excellent condition with no chips, cracks or other flaws.

Size is 9 1/2 inches long by 8 inches wide.

The Shelley Company started in 1860 as a second factory of the Foley Works in England to produce fine bone china. Joseph Shelley joined the operations in 1864. In 1870 he became partner in the enterprise and eventually ended up being in charge of the china production. The operations were renamed "Shelley" after disputes about the name Foley, (name for the region) in 1925. The Shelley pottery side of their business was closed at the beginning of WW11, but continued limited production of its fine china as it was a beneficial export item. After the war production expanded to a strong export market and peak production was achieved in the 1950's. Production fell after the 1960's due to consolidation and modernizing in the industry resulting in lower prices which Shelley found difficult to cope with. The company was sold in 1966 to Allied Potters. Some production continued until supply stocks were used up and all of the Shelley factories were closed.
