Worcester Porcelain Rich Queens Pattern Beaker Hand Painted England, Circa 1815$1,160.00
This is a gem! This hand painted Chamberlains Worcester beaker is decorated in the “Rich Queens” pattern, pattern #78. Another name for this pattern is the “Best Queen’s “pattern, and in our opinion, it is the best! It is one of the most beautiful early 19th-century English porcelain patterns. Despite its small size,(4.1″ tall) this beaker has an undeniable impact. Made by Chamberlains Worcester, the beaker is lavishly decorated with enamels of Imari colors: cobalt blue and iron red. Unexpected turquoise and green leaves heighten our appreciation of all the colors. The gilding, the colors, and the artistry are all fabulous! The design has four reserves on white ground showing Japanese-style iron red chrysanthemums with turquoise and green leaves. These reserves are separated by four bands with deep underglaze blue and lavish gilding in a diaper pattern. The bands are reserved in the middle with iron red mons. The attention to detail in this piece is truly remarkable, and it stands as a testament to the artistry and craftsmanship of Chamberlains Worcester.
The beaker is small (4.1 inches tall) but makes a significant impression.
Dimensions: 4.1″ tall x 3.9” diameter across the top
Pair Dragons in Compartments Plates with Scottish Armorial of the Clan Irvine$3,200.00
We are pleased to offer this pair of Dragons in Compartments pattern plates. They were hand-painted by Chamberlain Worcester. The plates are painted with mythical beasts alternating with images of vases all within lappet-shaped panels. This wonderful pattern is also known as Bengal Tiger or Kylin in compartments. It was first made by Worcester in the 18th century. The pattern is an exotic English interpretation of Chinese export porcelains from the Kangxi period.
This outstanding pair of dishes feature an important armorial of the Scottish Clan Irvine. The dishes were beautifully hand-painted in the Chamberlains Worcester factory circa 1820. Worcester first made this pattern in the mid-18th century. It is an exquisite English interpretation of Chinese export porcelains from the Kangxi period (1661–1722). The armorial displays a swan with a crown around her neck. The swan is the royal bird of Great Britain and symbolizes harmony with the royal house of the United Kingdom. The use of this well-known symbol asserts the loyalty of the Clan Irvine to the English monarch. This image on the Irvine crest is a late 18th-century creation.
Dimensions of the dishes: 9.25″ diameter
Condition: Excellent. There is the very slightest rubbing to the lettering of the motto on one of the dishes (see image #2).
