Shelley Bluebird Blue Bird China Teapot With Lid C. 1920-25 Perfect Condition For Sale
After noting the
success of bluebird china in America, some renowned English potters began producing
their own versions. This RARE teapot by Shelley of England is the perfect example!
The American pottery industry on the Ohio River Valley was
still in its infancy, still experimenting with formula and design
components. The English pottery
industry, on the other hand, had produced treasures in pottery and porcelain for
centuries and had perfected its processes.
While we all cherish the pieces from here at home, we would probably
have to admit that there is very little American bluebird china that matches
the quality of this English version by Shelley.
Produced about the same time, c. 1920-1925, as its American counterparts,
there is none of the typical crazing apparent in most of our bluebird
china. The gold edging and emphasis are
intact. The bluebirds and pink blossoms
with green leaves and blue flowers are still amazingly colorful! The porcelain is creamy white with only a few
age pits sprinkled about. It measures
about 9-1/2” from handle to tip of spout and stands about 5-1/2” tall.
Shipping and insurance will be $15. This will be packed with great care. You may return if broken or not as
