Here we have a beautiful Vintage Shelley Milk Jug and open Sugar Bowl in the rare and very pretty Art Deco pattern no 12566 ‘Winter’
There were four successive patterns in different colours to represent the different seasons.
For the Milk Jug the colourway is a white border around the top edge of the jug, blue swirls band on outside of jug top and bottom. Blue snowdrops outside jug. White ground. Blue foot line outside cup. Pale blue handle and lip of jug. The Sugar bowl has a pale blue top inside rim with a broad band of blue swirls inside the sugar bowl. The outside is white with blue snowdrops and a blue swirl border at the bottom.
Both the Milk Jug and Sugar Bowl have the Shelley back stamp for 1925 – 1940 and this particular pattern no 12566 ‘Winter’ was entered into the Shelley pattern book during or after 1936 so a lovely pair of Art Deco items.
The Milk Jug measures 3.5" (9cm) H x 4" (10cm) W (5.5"(14cm) tip of spout to tip of handle)
The Sugar Bowl measures 2.8" (7cm) D x 5.5" (14cm) W
Both Jug and Bowl are in excellent condition with no crazing, or cracks. The milk jug does have a chip on the inside of (the neck of the) lip but this does not affect the lip, is not noticeable from the outside and the jug still 'Pings' nicely. Generally there are one or two minor imperfections in the porcelain, but these are minimal and to be expected with age and use. The colours are glossy, a beautiful blue and the insides clean.
Overall, a beautiful example of this highly sought after Shelley service, not often seen.
