Chamberlain's Worcester Porcelain Basket and Cover Decorated with Sea Shells

About

The Chamberlain's Worcester circular basket is finely painted on each side with a large panel of sea shells and seaweed between a painted gilt seaweed ground. The openwork cover and rim of the basket are moulded and brightly painted with flowers, topped by a gilt flowerhead finial. the handles also decorated with gilt vinework. Mark: Pseudo-Meissen crossed swords in blue Reference: Chamberlain Worcester Porcelain. Robert Chamberlain, the head of the decorating department for Dr John Wall the founder of the Worcester porcelain company, established his own company at Warmstry House, King Street, Worcester. This new company initially painted blanks manufactured by other companies, but steadily expanded into the manufacture of his own wares. By the Regency period Chamberlain Worcester had acquired some fame for the very quality of his hand painted porcelain. His clients included Lord Nelson, and also the Prince Regent who granted the company his Royal Warrant in 1807. Chamberlain’s success was reflected in the way that he sold his wares via his shop at 33 Worcester High Street and via his fashionable London show room, initial set up at no 63 Piccadilly but eventually moving to 155 New Bond Street in 1816. Needless to say Chamberlain porcelain became a significant rival of Flight Bar and Grainger.
