A classic Victorian style pattern, this elegant Shell design was produced by John Biggin Ltd. Sheffield. The exact year it was introduced is not known but it may have been produced until the company closed in 1994, therefore discontinued.
The shell pattern appears both on the front and back.
All pieces offered here are in never-used condition, ideal for gift giving.
