Foley Pre Shelley Wileman CUP & SAUCER RARE Antique 1893 Dainty Pink Empire, Ivy Pattern. Antique Charles Wileman & Co Foley (pre-Shelley) Cup & Saucer; Ivy Pattern 5042 with pink & fawn leaves and scalloped edge, circa 1890's. Hand painted in gold on each item. Very rare to find the taller cup offered here at Cherished Hunts.The cup measures 3 1/8" tall and 2 5/8" diameter. And the saucer is 5 diameter. One very tight small hairline on cup, (second to last photo) this does not impact the integrity of the cup, does not go through to the outside of cup either, not seen from the outside. This set is in very good antique condition.
Very faint crazing, the crazing causes the items to sound dull when tapped. Crazing is a normal sign of ageing and is common on most Wileman items due to the production methods used at the time. The gilding is in surprisingly great condition given the age of the china set - it has been around for nearly 125 years.
Wileman (later renamed Shelley and sometimes called Foley) was one of the most respected manufacturers of fine bone china tea sets in the late 19th and early 20th Century, and many of their products are now collector's items. They made many different shapes of cups and the Empire shape is sought after for its dignity and grace. Registered in 1893, the Ivy Pattern illustrates ivy gently trailing off the rims of each item. The pattern was available in 12 colours.Kilns were fired on coal in the late 1800s, and this meant that china from that period can have some firing specks from flying particles.
