Acacia blossoms – Shelley Art Deco

This set of six demitasse cups is a feast of warmly coloured Acacia blossoms. It was made between 1925 and 1940 and it inspires the southern sun – much needed in cold Britain! It is a beautiful example of Shelley’s Art Deco period; the cups are in the wonderfully gracious and delicate Regent shape, and the colours are bold. The set is in perfect condition and it would make you feel proud to serve coffee to a crowd from this. You can find the listing here in my Vintage shop.
