If you said yes to the above then you you will probably love what I purchased recently. It’s a beautiful tea set  named Blue Rock by Shelley.The porcelain is so fine you can virtually see through it when you hold it to the light. It is very difficult to find complete sets like this anymore. Can you imagine your table set with such beautiful China?

Shelley (formerly Wileman) until the early 20th century has produced China since the 1820’s. Shelley used names for each of their designs including Bute, Dainty and Ovide. This design is ‘Dainty’. The Blue Rock design was made between 1940 – 1966. It has the green shield Shelley back stamp and the words fine bone china.

I will be taking this set to the Kembla Grange Fair from the 20th – 22nd May. If you are interested in taking a look at this beautiful set the fair begins on the Friday night (20th) and finishes on Sunday (22nd).

The set is shown second from the left in the photos below.

The other items shown are just a couple of pieces I have also bought recently. A Shelley trio in the primrose design, an antique cut crystal decanter with a pointed stopper and a Crusader 5 piece silver plate tea service.

Don’t forget if there is anything you would like me to bring to the fair or you would like me to source for you then just email me mka@netspace.net.au

Hope to see you at the fair. Come by and say hello.

Maggie
