Grainger Worcester hand painted part dessert set pattern 3358

About the Item

This hand painted and gilded porcelain part dessert service comprises two low comports and six plates and was made by the firm of Grainger's of Worcester. The very pretty painting of roses in delicate pastel colours on a pale cream ground is probably by George Cole (1863-1912) who specialised in painting roses, and used a technique to paint flowers that required only one firing. He was one of the principal artists at Grainger's and was awarded the same status when he transferred to Royal Worcester in 1902. The pattern number is 3358. The diameter of the plates is 220 mm (8.75 inches). The oval comport is 280 mm (11 inches) long, 215 mm (8.5 inches) wide and 40 mm (1.5 inches) high. The kidney shaped comport is 243 mm (9.5 inches) long, 220 mm (8.75 inches) wide and 40 mm (1.5 inches) high. There is some heavy rubbing to the intricate gilding on the comports and some slight rubbing of the ground but no other damage. The plates have some slight rubbing of the gilding. Overall any damage to this set is of a very minor nature. The date mark is for 1893.

  • Chamberlain's Worcester Porcelain Hand Painted Part Tea Set
    By Chamberlains Worcester
    Located in East Geelong, VIC
    This Chamberlain's Worcester porcelain hand painted and gilded tea set consists of 31 pieces- a teapot and stand, a lidded sugar box, milk jug, slop bowl, two cake plates and twelve tea bowls and twelve saucers. The pattern, 351, on Chamberlain's New Oval shape, has retained its vibrancy of colour, but the gilding on the handles shows some wear. Four of the pieces have sustained some damage, the most obvious is to the tip of the teapot spout which has been fitted with a metal collar so that it can still pour. There are also two small chips to the inside rim of the pot. The sugar box as a chip to the base and another to the underside of the lid. One of the plates has a star crack to the base, and one of the teabowls has a crack. The milk jug has a shallow firing crack to the inside, but this was filled with glaze in the factory. Apart from the pattern number, the set is unmarked. However, the pattern is shown in plate 239 of Berthoud's "Compendium of British Cups". The teapot corresponds with plate 1001 of Berthoud's "Directory of British Teapots...

  • Grainger Worcester Tea Set, Rococo Revival, Sevres-Style Birds, circa 1830
    By Grainger Worcester
    Located in London, GB
    This is a tea set produced by Grainger Worcester in circa 1830, which was the Rococo Revival era. The set is decorated with birds and consists of a teapot, teapot stand or cake plate and two narrow cups and saucers. Grainger was one of the leading factories in Worcester in the 19th century. It started in the early days of British bone china production at the very beginning of the century, and was merged with Royal Worcester about 100 years later. During this era they were among the leaders of china production, producing exceptionally finely painted and sculpted forms, often jewelled, pierced or reticulated and decorated with exceptional art work. This set is potted in the Rococo Revival style and closely resembles tea services made by Henry Daniel - Grainger was known for making close and very nice imitations of the first class designs by Daniel. The teapot has a nice handle with a large thumb rest and a collared rim. The cups, which are probably coffee cups as they are narrow, have beautifully shaped "rustic bean" handles that closely resemble Henry Daniel's designs of that era. The items are simple white with beautifully hand painted birds in the Sevres style, as well as gilt vine motif. The rims are gadrooned, as was popular around this time. An image of the teapot shape and pattern 1681 (although a more luxurious version with feet, which this teapot doesn't have) can be found in Michael Berthoud's "An Anthology of British Teapots...
