This tea set was made by Shelley in England. I have four trios, cake plate and creamer and sugar. It is in perfect condition and would grace any table. Just beautiful.The colour is more a blue than is shown here . This is a rare pattern with very few sets available. I will be taking this to Berry antique Fair on the 17 and 18 September.
it would be great to see you there.
My next fair is being held in Berry on the beautiful south coast of NSW in the School of Arts Hall, Alexandria Street, Berry. The dates are Saturday 17 September (10am to 5.00pm and Sunday 18 September, 10am to 4.00pm). Why not come for the day or the weekend? There is so much to do in Berry. There is a great vibe in the village during the weekends.
I have new stock that will be on display including green depression glass butter keepers (so hard to find these days! ), sparkling crystal wine glasses, crystal decanters and crystal water jugs, antique trios from all the famous makers, Royal Doulton figurines including the rare Sunday Morning, mother of pearl handled knives and excellent quality Art Deco silver coffee and tea sets?
I have exquisite linen tablecloths that I will be bringing as well. Cloths like these should take pride of place on beautifully set dining tables?
Over the next few weeks I will post some of the new pieces I will be taking to Berry.
This weekend is the Camden Antique Fair at the Camden Civic Centre, Oxley St, Camden. It is a great fair! I can’t wait to see my new and old friends. My stand is called Maggie’s Antiques and you will find me just inside the entrance on the right. I will have a variety of antiques for sale including crystal decanters, Stuart crystal glasses, fine china duos and trios from all the famous makers including Shelley, Royal Albert, and Royal Staffordshire, figurines from Coalport and Royal Doulton some rare collector’s pieces, silver, and many more pieces. I have the Kate Greenaway figurines which are just adorable and the Royal Crown Derby Treasures of Childhood pieces. I will also be bringing my collection of antique linens including tablecloths, an Edwardian Christening gown, table runners, pillow shams.
There’s sure to be something you will want to cherish and keep.
Looking forward to seeing you at the fair,
My next antique fair is this weekend coming at Blackheath. Bring your winter woollies if you intend coming along…you might even see snow if this cold weather continues.
I have many new items to show you. One special arrival is a Shelley coffee set in the Wildflower pattern. It is beautiful, has six cups and saucers, creamer, sugar bowl and coffee pot. It is pristine.
Royal Albert and Shelley duos and trios are also amongst the new pretties.
If you like silver, then maybe a coffee and tea service may be of interest to you.
Some beautiful crystal will also be on my stand. Come and have a look at Stuart crystal glasses, decanters and vases.
The antique fair is at the Memorial Hall on the Great Western Highway, Blackheath. Maybe I’ll see you there.
We had a great fair last weekend at Kembla Grange. There were many visitors and we met some lovely people who were very interested in our beautiful antiques we had for sale. All of my new silver items were sold at the fair. A beautiful etched glass and silver claret jug was bought by a gentleman who fell in love with it, a crystal perfume bottle with silver mounts was the delight of a lady who bought it and a 1930’s silver plated tea set complete with tray went home with a very happy man. Shelley cups and saucers were very popular as well as antique glassware.
Oue next fair is the Springwood Fair held at Winmalee High School during the first weekend in June. I am expecting a shipment from England and I’ll post some of these new items once they have arrived. For the dog lovers out there a large selection of Beswick dogs is among the new pieces. Maybe there will be something among them you would like.
i will also be taking some of my exquisite antique linen and lace items, including linen tablecloths, an Edwardian Christening gown and some Italian cloths all handmade and very hard to come by.
Remember if there is anything you would like me to bring along to the fair for you to have a look at just email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Until next time
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 email@example.com
Hope to see you at the fair. Come by and say hello.
