Shelley Cup And Saucer Lilac Time Art Deco Oxford
This is a fabulous Shelly china, England bone china cup and saucer in the Oxford shape in a pattern called Lilac Time.
The cup and saucer is a bit of an anomaly as the number on it does not agree with the Shelley pattern books.
The teacup and saucer is a very deco design and was produced during 1934-1940. The cup is 2.75 inches high by 3.25 inches in diameter and the deep, art deco shape saucer is 5.5 inches in diameter.
It has a lovely hand painted on grey transfer design with lovely lilac blossom clusters and blue trim.
The tea cup and saucer are in very good +++ condition with no chips, cracks or wear.
There are 4 pinpoint popped glaze bubbles on the saucer and on slight grey brush mark on the back of the cup made by the artist during manufacture, none of which detract or are even visible.
A great set.
