About

This is a beautiful lidded sucrier made by Chamberlains Worcester in circa 1795. The sucrier has a spirally fluted shape and is decorated with an ochre band, gilt and little blue corn flowers. The Chamberlain factory was founded in the 1780s by Robert Chamberlain, who was responsible for the decoration department in the famous Worcester pottery during the Dr Wall period. He set up his own factory with his son Humphrey, initially buying up stock from Turner's Caughley factory for decoration, but then circa 1794 starting to produce their own porcelain. By the year 1800 they had built up a strong reputation, producing wonderful tea and dinner ware for the British and European nobility and becoming a mighty competitor of both the Worcester/Flight & Barr and Grainger factories. In the 1840s the factory merged back with Worcester, which later also bought Grainger and was formed into the later Royal Worcester.  The sucrier has a spirally fluted body and is decorated with an ochre band, gilt and little blue corn flowers. It has nice gilded handles in the shape of faux rings on either side, and an acorn finial. There are two interesting things about the way this sucrier is marked - presumably a few things went wrong during production! The pattern number on the body is 190 while the number on the lid is 185, yet they clearly are the same pattern. In addition to this, the marking on the underside of the lid is rather charmingly misspelt: "Chamberlains Worcester Worented" - this of course was meant to be "Warranted". Condition report: The sucrier is in good antique condition; it has a chip on the inside of the lid, which is not visible when in position. There is some light wear, as visible in the pictures. Antique British porcelain is never perfect. Kilns were fired on coal in the 1800s, and this meant that china from that period can have some firing specks from flying particles. British makers were also known for their experimentation, and sometimes this resulted in technically imperfect results. Due to the shrinkage in the kiln, items can have small firing lines or develop crazing over time, which should not be seen as damage but as an imperfection of the maker's recipes, probably unknown at the time of making. Items have often been used for many years and can have normal signs of wear, and gilt can have signs of slight disintegration even if never handled. I will reflect any damage, repairs, obvious stress marks, crazing or heavy wear in the item description but some minor scratches, nicks, stains and gilt disintegration can be normal for vintage items and need to be taken into account. There is widespread confusion on the internet about the difference between chips and nicks, or hairlines and cracks. I will reflect any damage as truthfully as I can, i.e. a nick is a tiny bit of damage smaller than 1mm and a chip is something you can easily see with the eye; a glazing line is a break in the glazing only; hairline is extremely tight and/or superficial and not picked up by the finger; and a crack is obvious both to the eye and the finger. Dimensions: 15.3cm (6") wide, 10.8 deep (4.24"), 15.3cm (6") high incl. finial.
