The word "chintz" immediately conjures up visions of lavish floral designs and stately English Country homes. Shelley Chintz is a treasure, tracing the history of the chintz textiles from India in the 1600 to the craze in Europe. Over the years chintz has been sought after, collected, forbidden and outlawed!! It is as popular today as during its heyday - both in textiles and china alike.

A lavish, stunning coffee table book full of life-size photographs of the popular, multi-colored floral designs known as "chintz". This book was more sumptuously produced than any other, in its genre!From the Author:
"I love collecting Shelley's chintz ware, my house reflects my passion for Shelley; fireplace mantels are jammed full, china cupboards are overstuffed, wall cabinets flowing over and now teacups are sitting on top of every flat surface left in the house! Having a background in Fine Art and gardening it was only nature that I would fall in love with the multi-coloured flowers of chintz! I've put so much of my heart & soul into this book - I hope you will enjoy it." Kelly L. Moran
