Shelley /Wileman was known for their high quality English Fine Bone China. They were very successful and created a wide variety of beautiful shapes, patterns and colors up until the closure in 1966. The company no longer exists and the lovely sought after pieces are becoming more and more difficult to find.
All items are previously owned or vintage estate pieces. They are described as found. Because they come from previous owners they may have light scratches or very light wear. I will always describe any obvious flaws or any type of wear so you are well informed before buying. I take many pictures and I welcome you to ask as many questions as you like. Parcels are packed with foam, peanuts and bubble wrap for safe travel at no extra cost to you. The peanuts are biodegradable and I ask that you please try to recycle my packaging if possible. Together we can do our part in protecting our environment. Shipping costs are kept down without compromising the safety of the items. Combined shipping is always considered when making multiple purchases.
