Shelley is perhaps the most collectible of all English china and this dainty pink star polka dot set is among the most popular Shelley designs (pattern 12969). There is something so pretty and feminine about the dainty cup shape. The set is covered with tiny pink stars and polka dots on a pale pink background. It dates to the 1940s and is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, crazing or repairs. I did note some scuff marks on one section of the cup (see close-up photo). It's not something that you'd notice right away, but is evident upon closer inspection. Both pieces ping nicely.

Please note: This is a vintage set so some degree of wear should be expected. I do my best to describe the condition of each piece and provide detailed photographs, but I am not an expert. Please review all photos carefully, as they are part of the description. If you have any questions about the piece, please contact me.

Thanks for looking!
