HISTORY of WORCESTER PORCELAIN
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.
By 1800, the Chamberlain Worcester factory was well established. Chamberlains Worcester was one of the leading manufacturers of English porcelains.
