Shelley Pottery pieces can often offer a timeless elegance sometimes overlooked.
This super Shelley pottery vase has been decorated with three bands of green with pattern detail to the top band. This vase is very much like an elephants foot or onion in shape – a long stem with bulb at the bottom!
On it’s base it has the black printed Shelley England pottery mark dating it c1925 to 1945.

The September / October 2008 edition of the Antiques Info magazine is now out and the main 20th Century Ceramics feature article from Roland Head in this edition looks into Shelley and the different designers that worked there.
Roland looks at the work of Frederick Rhead and brothers Eric Slater and Walter Slater over the decades they worked at the Shelley factory. The article displays examples of their works and is most interesting to read.
Antiques Info not only provides feature articles and information on a wide range of pottery, glass and other collectable areas but also provides a comprehensive list of fairs and auctions for the coming months.
A question with several possible answers – but in our case it’s nursery wares, in particular those made by Shelley, which form the subject of our newsletter this month.
Hot on the heels of the birth of our first niece, it seemed a good choice, especially as Shelley
produced a surprisingly wide range of nursery wares – from commemorative pieces through to Mabel Lucie Attwell’s Boo-Boo wares with their fairyland characters.
