Shelley (known as Wileman until the early 20th century) began producing beautiful china items in the 1820s. Shelley Pottery continued production until 1966, when it was sold to Allied English Potteries.

Shelley used hundreds of different patterns, many feminine and floral, and always decorative. Patterns were noted by pattern number and often by name. Shelley's vast range of patterns was matched by their vast array of cup "shapes" — for example (and this is nowhere near definitive): Oleander, Queen Anne, Henley, Gainsborough, Richmond, Cambridge, Bute, Dainty, Mode, Vogue and Eve.

Shelley is widely regarded for the fine quality of their tea wares - and their products have captured collectors attention, worldwide, for at least the last 3 decades.
