The prized workmanship of Shelley has brought a breath of fresh air into design with this friendship cup. Ladies used to bring a teacup as a token of caring. Before the days of "ladies who lunch," friends gathered over coffee and tea. They gave each other a Friendship Cup. Some people like this as a housewarming gift because there are so many colors on it. That makes it pretty in every room.
Shelley hired the best artisans and used the finest materials available. They became prestigious. They are still highly collectible.
Using the Dainty style cup and saucer, Shelley Fine Bone China of England created this Roses Pansies and Forget Me Not pattern, number 13424 trimmed in sky blue.
Measurements: The saucer is 5.6" in diameter. The cup is 2.5" high and 3.6" from rim to rim.
Also included in the price is free Priority Mail shipping within the US, free gift wrapping and free insurance.

Do not wash any of the china in the dishwasher. It may cause crazing if boiling water is poured directly into the cup. These are not made for microwave use either.
