Shelley England Ovington Peony Cup and Saucer Gainsborough 1950s
This is a Shelley China, England vintage cup and saucer in the Ovington, Peony or Chippendale pattern 13216 and Gainsborough shape with green trim and was made between 1960 and 1966 when the pottery closed.
The design has hand applied enamels over a blck transfer print.
The pattern with very slight variations was made at different times and in different shapes by Shelley and all 3 names were variously used.
The cup is cup is 2.75 inches high and the saucer is 5.5 inches in diameter.
The set is in very good +++ condition with no chips, cracks or restorations.
I love this pretty pattern and it would make a treat of any cup of tea!
