New Slideshow - Miscellaneous - July 2024

Our latest slideshow features another miscellaneous selection of iconic Shelley and Wileman pieces. If you have not already seen the slideshow head to our Home page or click on this link.

'Huntin' Shootin' an Fishin'
If you missed Gerry Pearce's Zoom presentation entitled Huntin' Shootin' an Fishin' on Friday 19 June, a recording of this is now available under Video Presentations-Playlist or may be viewed directly from this link. This was originally presented by Gerry at the Shelley Group Annual Weekend in 2003.

Stoke on Trent City Archives - Shelley & Wileman Pattern Books
The Stoke on Trent City Archives which houses the Shelley and Wileman Pattern Books, has now re-opened (wef. 22May 2024) at its new home at the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery just next door. More detailed information is available by following the link on our Pattern Books page.

Teapot Shapes V2
As announced at the Annual Weekend and AGM at Telford recently, we have now updated our Teapot Shapes page in similar style to that of Cup Shapes, Milk Jugs and Maps. The page is interactive by clicking or tapping on the separate images to produce an enlarged view and then following the 'Next', 'Previous', or 'Close' buttons. As this is a significant update to the previous version, your comments will be appreciated in respect of any further amendments needed, errors noted or additional teapots found. Please contact with details.

Potteries Auctions
Following earlier successful auctions of Shelley and Wileman ceramics, the Potteries Auctions near Stoke on Trent, will be selling more of the extensive collections of our late members, Les and Enid Foley and Ian and Sheila Davies. Included are rare and beautiful items from across the years of the pottery. Look out for future auctions in 2024 at https:/ - search for both Wileman and Shelley. These are live auctions and it is possible to bid, online (directly with the Potteries or via the Saleroom and Easylive) or by leaving commission bids. Details at the Potteries Auctions web site.

*** See the highlights of the latest auction on 7-9 March 2024 ***
