Shelley Pottery

Here we see an English Shelley Art Deco Coffee set.  The Shelley mark on the bottom of the set was used from 1925-45.  The registered number, 756533, represents the Mode style.  The coffee pot is 7"x8", sugar is 2 1/8x4 1/8, creamer is 2 3/4x4 1/4", cups are 2 3/8x2 7/8", saucer is 4 5/8".  Note the geometric handles and the bright yellow color make this set extremely valuable.  The coffee pot is rare due to the extensive use of tea in England.  All pieces are in excellent condition.  Valued at $4,500.
