A TREASURED GIFT FROM MY MOTHER
As many of you know, Shelley, a Fine Bone China company from England, has not been in business since the 1960's. I have been advised that Shelley actually started in 1876 as Wilernan's and closed in 1966. My parents (now deceased) were gifted with this 'HEATHER' luncheon set of 6 each of cups, saucers and sandwich plates. I have but one cup, 2 saucers, and 2 sandwich plates; all are in excellent condition, and no chips. I treasure them and do not use them as I would love to be able to pass them along to one of my 2 grand daughters. I believe that a single cup and saucer replacement at this time would be approximately $80. but the memory value far exceeds a dollar value. I love the pattern and tones of this beautiful "Heather" pattern, which to me, seems ageless. I hope you enjoy seeing my treasures today.
I wish to thank a lovely lady named Ruth who is a Shelley specialist. She was kind enough to educate me with respect to my "Shelley" treasures. Kudos to her for her vast knowledge.
