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.
