An extremely scarce and stunning Shelley Art Deco Queen Anne demitasse/coffee cup & saucer. Never seen this pattern before! No pattern number to any of the pieces could indicate that this set was produced as a "one off" - Black ground with elaborate gold leaf decoration. Border of bunches of grapes and vine leaves. Gold cup interior, trim and cup handle.
Would have been a very expensive set to produce. Any white marks in the photo's are just reflections as this set is quite reflective and difficult to photograph. The shape of this cup and saucer is the Queen Anne shape which is octagonal in shape and was first introduced in 1926. The back stamp is the 1925-40 green cartouche mark.Dimensions: demitasse/coffee cup base 32mm (1.25 inches) / distance across top of cup 66mm (2.6 inches) / height of cup 60mm (2.3 inches) / saucer 112mm (4.4 inches). Condition: Both pieces are in excellent clean pristine condition with no chips, cracks, crazing, scratching or any signs of wear. All black paintwork and gilding is in perfect order with no fading to the pattern. Both pieces have an excellent "ping" to them when lightly tapped.
