Tall Trees and Sunrise at Replacements

Pattern dates to circa 1929. One of the most beautiful and arguably most popular of all Shelley’s Art Deco Queen Anne patterns. The Queen Anne Shape is essentially octagonal with 4 large and 4 small panels. Hand painted on a white background, is a black print of a fence, a gate, and tall trees with the hard enameled yellow sun rising visibly through black tall trees, woodland in shades of grey and a meadow in yellow, on white base with yellow trim and handle. The glow of the sun is reflected on the ground beyond the hedgerow in hand enameled yellow-orange. I love this cup! It’s so very Art Deco with the unusual shape and strong colours. For reasons I can’t explain, Emily calls this one Ginny. I would serve something bold in this- Constant Comment, perhaps.
