We are offering here a magnificent Antique Wileman Foley, or early Shelley, 12 Place Tea Service. This set includes 12 cups and saucers, 12 side plates, 2 cake serving plates, and a creamer and large open sugar. The set is done in the "Snowdrop" shape, and has a wonderful pale pumpkin color on the rims and fading to a pale yellow. The large plates are 9 1/2" across, and the side plates are 7 1/4" across. The cups are 3 3/8" across the rims and 2 1/4" high, while the saucers are 5 5/8" across. The amazing thing is that none of the pieces have any chips, cracks, or other damage, but a few show some very minor wear to the gold highlights. Only one cup has the Wileman Foley mark, but many other pieces have the same English Rd. No. while others only have the number for the shape impressed on the bottoms. The Rd. No. dates this set to 1896. A magnificent large and complete set which is hard to find.
