This is a great reference book for Shelley china collectors. It shows pattern shapes, pattern numbers and color photos of the hundreds of Shelley tea sets. Great for a beginning collector or for someone who wantsto catalog their collection. Also,it gives the history of the Shelley company from 1860 to its end in 1966. I like this reference book the best of all the Shelley books I have collected.
Though a little expensive, this book is a "must have" resource for any Shelley collector. As an avid collector myself, I use this book on a daily basis and have found it to be 99.99% accurate on patterns and descriptions. It does appear that the dollar value placed on items may be a little high, but that may be due to the fact the author lives in England and her values in pounds need to be "translated" into current dollar equivalency. Highly recommended resource for a Shelley collector!
This is the most complete reference for Shelley tea ware patterns that we have found. Shelley shapes and styles are well illustrated, and thousands of photographs of Shelley patterns are shown. Information is provided on dates of manufacture for most all patterns. Consider this book the "must have" guide to Shelley tea ware.
Great book. Very helpful, I was able to find info on patterns that I had not been able to find before.
this book is easy to browse through, wonderful colorful pictures, a lot of informative and helpful material
The photos and descriptions were thorough and very descriptive for anyone who is a first time Shelley collector. Would recommend this book.
