Product Description

A fine Worcester Chamberlain porcelain sugar bowl decorated in ‘Mazarin’ blue and gilded extensively.

Chamberlain porcelain is surprisingly contemporary in its simplicity and differs greatly from the Chinoiserie styles that preceded it.

Robert Chamberlain (1737 -1798) was one of the first apprentices at Dr Wall's Worcester Porcelain factory. It is believed that by the 1770s he oversaw the decoration of Worcester Porcelain and he later established his own company at Warmstry House, Worcester. The new company initially painted blank vessels made elsewhere, but would expand into manufacturing. By the Regency period Chamberlain Worcester found fame for the impeccable quality of its pieces. His clients included Lord Nelson and also the Prince Regent who gave the company his Royal Warrant in 1807.

The condition is very good, without any chips. There is slight wear to the gilding on the rim beneath the lid, but in most parts it is pristine. The inside of the cover bears ‘Chamberlain's Worcester warranted 315’ in mauve ink. This is consistent with the early period of Chamberlains 1786-1796.
