Dr. Wall First Period Queen Charlotte Pattern Worcester Basket

Presenting a rare first period Dr. Wall porcelain chestnut basket in the pattern known as Queen Charlotte or Charlotte's Wheel. The pattern was named after Queen Charlotte of England wife of George III. The basket features a cross-hatch design picked out in florets that resemble a wheel. The base of the basket is decorated in radiating panels of scrolls and flowers. It is fitted with twisted branch handles terminating in florets.

Dr. Wall, a physician, and William Davis, an apothecary founded a factory at Warmstry House, Worcester, England, on the banks of the River Severn in 1751. They developed a unique method for producing porcelain and decorated many of their first wares in underglaze blues then later in colored enamels. The Dr. Wall period lasted until 1783 when Thomas Flight purchased the factory.

The basket is in excellent condition with two age related chips to floral leaves and minute chips to a few floret tips.
