A Vintage Shelley Teacup

This is a Shelley 17525 white teacup with a pink foot and handle. 
The pattern is pink roses with a green trim. 
I have three different Shelley teacups in my teacup collection.   
Can't you just imagine sitting in the parlor (parlour if you are British) visiting with your lady friends and sipping tea from this beautiful teacup?

That is a lovely teacup. I really like the border of intertwined leaves and pink ribbon. The pink foot and handle is pretty too.

Pink and green...my favorite color combination. A very beautiful teacup.

I don't have any Shelley teacups in my collection. On a recent excursion to an antique mall though, I discovered two...and I fell in love with them. Both were over $90...well out of my budget.

Maybe one day...but until then, I will have to enjoy them through blogs like yours.

Blessings,
Patti

Oh, I LOVE this set with the pretty pink highlights! I have a Shelley creamer and sugar but no teacup, alas!

I love Shelley teacups - my heart seems to pause a bit whenever I find them for sale. They are usually at prices I'm not prepared to pay but one of these days I hope to add a few to my collection. I wonder if tea tastes better in a Shelley cup!
