Shelley Teacup Trio Blue Swallows Bute Shape 1906-1910 Edwardian Era
This is a neat bone china tea cup trio consisting of cup, saucer and tea plate made by Shelley China, England between 1906-1910.
The design is called Swallow or Swallows in the blue colorway and is number 10113 and has wonderful blue on blue flying swallows or bluebirds and flowers on white bone china with gold trim.
The cup is 2.25 inches high by 3.25 in diameter, the saucer is 5.75 inches in diameter, and the matching plate is 6.85 inches in diameter.
The teacup set is of bone china and made in the Bute shape which isn't often seen.
The cup, saucer and plate or teacup trio is in very good +++ used vintage condition with no chips or cracks but does show gold trim wear.
A lovely tea table addition, and I love the blue and the bird theme.
