PRICE: $2,300 The tureen is marked "Chamberlain's Worcester No 155 New Bond Street London". HISTORY The painting and gilding of the Chamberlains Worcester factory met the highest standards of porcelain manufacturers during the period. It's no surprise, then, that the factory enjoyed royal patronage as a result in its excellence. 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, the Oriental-style "Dragon" pattern was very popular. 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.
