Chamberlain’s Worcester porcelain hand painted tea set. Item 4008.
This Chamberlain’s Worcester porcelain hand painted and gilded tea set consists of 31 pieces- a teapot and stand, a lidded sugar box, milk jug, slop bowl, two cake plates and twelve teabowls and twelve saucers. The pattern, 351, on Chamberlain’s New Oval shape, has retained its vibrancy of colour, but the gilding on the handles shows some wear. Four of the pieces have sustained some damage, the most obvious is to the tip of the teapot spout which has been fitted with a metal collar so that it can still pour. There are also two small chips to the inside of the pot. The sugar box as a chip to the base and another to the underside of the lid. One of the plates has a star crack to the base, and one of the teabowls has a crack. The milk jug has a shallow firing crack to the inside, but this was filled with glaze in the factory. Apart from the pattern number, the set is unmarked. However, the pattern is shown in plate 239 of Berthoud’s “Compendium of British Cups”. The teapot corresponds with plate 1001 of Berthoud’s “Directory of British Teapots” and the creamer with plate 456 of “Cabinet of British Creamers”. C1810. The set itself weighs 4.7 kg, so if you are interested in this item, please contact me at [email protected] as it might be cheaper to ship using a courier rather than Australia Post.
