Antique Sugar Box Made by Chamberlains Worcester Bengal Tiger Pattern

About

This antique sugar box made by Chamberlains Worcester in the Bengal tiger pattern is painted with lappet-shaped panels on each side showing a mythical beast. At each end of the sugar box is a panel showing objects of good fortune. The border is painted in the Famille Verte palette. A lovely detail along the top and bottom of the sugar box are rows of small green and orange banners. This very popular Chamberlains Worcester pattern is known as Bengal tiger, dragon in compartments, or kylin in compartments. It was first made by Worcester in the 18th century. The pattern is an exotic English interpretation of Chinese export porcelains from the Kangxi period. The painting and gilding of the Chamberlains Worcester factory met the highest standards of porcelain manufacturers during the period, and the factory enjoyed royal patronage. Robert Chamberlain and his son Humphrey were responsible for the decoration and gilding of the porcelains made in the original Worcester factory during the 1770s and 1780s. In 1793 they opened their own porcelain manufactory in Worcester. According to Chamberlain Worcester Porcelain 1788-1852 by Geoffrey Godden."A very popular Oriental-styled pattern is the one known as Dragon it is today often called Tiger. At the time factory records show that a large Gallon Punch bowl sold for 220 pound sterling. By 1800 the Chamberlain Worcester factory was well established. Chamberlains Worcester and Flight Barr Worcester were the two leading manufacturers of English porcelains.
