Teacup Tuesday - Shelley Rose Bud & Some Swap Sneak Peeks



Welcome to another Teacup Tuesday....

Hosted by the lovely Terri and Martha.....

Be sure to check out Terri's Blog Here &
To see more Teacup Tuesday Participants....
You wont be disappointed!
 
Today I would like to introduce you to 
"Shelley Rosebud"

Shelley Dainty Shaped Rosebud Cup and Saucer Trio.

This dainty bone china tea cup and saucer 
are decorated with the pattern titled 
“Rosebud” 
Which features Handpainted Pink Rosebuds & 
Pale Green Leaves on a White Background. 
The rims of the cup and saucer are trimmed in Pale Green
As is the handle. 


The shape of the piece is DAINTY
Unlike the previous ones that were Queen Ann Shape. 
The pattern number is 13426. 
This sets the dates between 1940 - 1966, 
And was entered into the Shelley Pattern Book in 1940.


I hope you enjoy this pretty and feminine piece.

Inspiration Today ???
How about what to serve with this Dainty Set???
