Shelley Queen Anne

Shelley Queen Anne 'Crabtree' jug c1929

Shelley introduced the Queen Anne range in 1926 and it was a great success. It's probably one of the earliest art deco shapes to be developed by the potteries in the late 1920s and early 30s. Patterns were mainly applied using a print and enamel technique and many were designed specifically for the shape. By the early 1930s the shape was being phased out as more angular shapes such as Vogue and Mode became more fashionable. For more Shelley visit Premier Antiques
