The latest addition to the Perfect Pieces Shelley pottery section is this superb Shelley pottery Harmony ware footed vase:

Shelley Harmony Vase

This Shelley vase is a fabulous footed vase which flares out at the top. It is from the Shelley Harmony range with banded shades of orange decorating the main body. At the top it has an unusual pattern picked out in brown which matches the foot of the vase which has also been coloured in brown.

This vase dates c1925-1945 and is surprisingly small at just over 4 inches tall. It would fit into an existing Harmony Ware collection very nicely and provide an interesting contrast to the more common larger pieces of Shelley pottery.

Shelley, Antiques Info & Perfect Pieces!

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.

What’s Designed For Children But Collected By Adults?

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.
