This set of six Shelley soup bowls and saucers features the Davies Tulip pattern on the Gainsborough shape. Although none of the pieces carry a pattern number, they are probably decorated with pattern 2267, which was used on seconds ware, and was issued in the early 1950's. The bowl shape was exhibited at the Festival of Britain in 1951, as shown in plate 72, page 144 of "Shelley Potteries" by Watkins, Harvey and Senft. The bowls have a diameter of 120 mm (4.75 inches), and the plates 163 mm (6.5 inches). All the pieces are in excellent condition apart from some minor glaze faults to a couple of the bowls. This set would dates from the mid 1950's.
