Sunrise and Tall Trees - My First Tea Cup Tuesday


Hello Again My Friends
And Welcome to any New Tea Cup Enthusiasts!

Don't you just love Pretty Tea Cups...
Well I have taken the plunge.... &
Joined Tea Cup Tuesday :)

Hostesses with the Mostess are....

So without any further adieu....
I would like to introduce to you one of my Favorite Shelly Trios.....
I have been collecting Shelley China since I left school....:)

Shelley Sunrise and Tall Trees


This absolutely stunning Shelley Queen Anne Shape Cup 
Is one of my absolute favorites, and over time I will sharing a lot of cups in this shape 
As this style is where my love affair with Shelley began....


The pattern is the ever popular 11678 Sunrise and Tall Trees and is 
A superb Art Deco Design introduced in 1929
This design features a vibrant, Hand Painted, Egg Yellow Sun 
Set against Black and wonderfully contrasting Tall Trees and a Golden, English, Gated Field. 
This design is probably the most recognizable and striking pattern of this particularly Shelley era.

A Little Bit of Info...

A Fitting Quote...
"For most people, we often marvel at the beauty of a sunrise or the magnificence of a full moon, but it is impossible to fathom the magnitude of the universe that surrounds us."
By Henry H Baker...

Martha's Favorites said...

Hi: I have to confess, when I saw your tea cup I immediately went to Ebay to try and find one. I can not believe how expensive they are. I did not find yours, I guess that was good, too much money. I just love it. Thank you so much for being a part of this fun party. Blessings, Martha
