Teacup Tuesday, Tea Pot & Teacup Tuesday, Shelley Wild Flowers Teapot and Teacup

Happy Teacup Tuesday and Tea Pot and Tea Things Tuesday, And Teatime Tuesday and welcome to all the wonderful tea related blog parties!

Today I am sharing the Wild Flowers pattern by Shelley China, England in the Henley shape with blue trim made between 1940-1966.

It is so nice having several pieces in the pattern. To see more of the Shelley Wild Flowers teapot of teacup or more Shelley items click on the photos to visit my website Antiques And Teacups.

 I picked these up in the Cotswolds town of Burford at a monthly antiques market at the local church hall we have hit several years in a row.  You park by the river, wander through the chattering ducks up the small lane to the high street and into the church yard which is just across from one of our favorite tea shops...we always stop there after the faire for tea. The shop is Huffins Bakery & Tea Rooms. Lovely!

I hope you can read the menu...We love them all.  Then there are the cases of baked goods for take away or a daily special board of luncheon items and for take away as well. We have often stayed at a rental cottage within a few miles and often take food for the evening home from Huffins. Well worth the trip!

Teacup Tuesday


  1. Lovely tea cup and tea pot. Shelly is such a nice china!! We were in Burford yesterday -- at the market at the church!!!! We didn't have tea, however, but instead hit the needlework shop!!! We did get tea treats from Huffins but in Stow -- a great lardy cake which we took home for tea!

    We couldn't believe the view from the top of Burford's high street! And the one day we were without our cameras!

  2. I love your Shelley teacup and teapot. So lovely. Thanks for sharing about your market visit.

  3. Gorgeous tea cup and tea pot! How fab that you have several pieces in this pretty pattern. I only have two Shelley pieces as I do not see them very often. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful china with us.

  4. Good morning Ruth,
    The tea room sounds idyllic and a charming spot to sip tea. I always love seeing the Shelley patterns! They are so delicate and a real find. Thank you for sharing with Tea Time today. Wishing you a delightful day.


  5. What a beautiful Shelley wildflower teacup and teapot! I love the pale blue handles. The various afternoon tea choices on the menu look delightful, but I'd pick the classic, with the little sandwiches and scones.
