Finally, a much-needed expansive photo reference guide to this popular manufacturer of fine bone china from Longton in the renowned Staffordshire potting district in England. A grand assortment of the prolific Shelley Potterys products is illustrated, including works by their predecessor, Wileman & Co, a.k.a. The Foley China. Over 500 photos show more than 1,000 pieces, including dinnerware, tea and coffee sets, jelly molds, ashtrays and souvenir items, vases, pitchers, and the ever-popular miniatures in the chintz, landscapes, and bright floral patterns widely prized by todays collectors. A brief history of Shelley and its predecessor, spanning the years 1860-1966, is included. Plus there is a guide to back stamps; a buyers guide to fakes, reproductions, and damaged items; a pattern index; and current market values, all making this an invaluable tool for collectors and dealers.

Great book for collectors with plenty of pictures of shapes and patterns in Shelley China as well as prices. Covers all collectors items i.e. cups, saucers, plates, vases,tea pots, coffee pots, souvenir pieces etc.etc. I would recommend this book to serious and not so serious collectors. Shows beautiful and rare pieces that I have not seen before (but would love to have) and explains how to recognize fake, repairs and flaws as well as giving you a history on Shelley China. Overall this book by Tina Skinner and Jeffrey B Snyder is an insight into everything 'Shelly' - a great buy at a great price.

This is an excellent book for identification and values. I have found several pieces of mine and been able to learn more about this lovely china.

Missing a feature on the vogue/mode shapes as well as the queen anne. As these are the coveted and most popular shapes, it was a surprise not to find them in this book
