Wileman and Company, Early Shelley China, White Gold Trio, Shelley Trio, Victorian Trio, Antique Teacups, Vintage Teacup, WC China
This trio, a plate, teacup and saucer, is Victorian china at its finest. The pleats are mesmerizing.
The mark is that of Wileman & Co. Fenton & Longton, Staffordshire, England (circa 1892-1925). The Rd No. marks are design registration date marks from the English Registry mark system. Rd No 60650 is a code for the year 1887 and represents the design of the decoration on the china.
Prior to becoming Wileman & Co. in 1892 the company was know as James & Charles Wileman, Foley China Works. This company was established in 1864 and James Wileman continued the company under his own first & last name until he left or died in 1892. The business continued under new ownership from 1892 to 1925 under the Wileman & Co. name. In 1925 it became Shelley Potteries Ltd.
Shelley hired the finest artisans of their day and used the most expensive materials available. Their name became synonymous with quality.
Measurements: The saucer is 5.75" on the diagonal. The cup is 3.75" from rim to rim at the widest part and 2.25" high. The plate is 7.5" across the diagonal.
