This fantastic piece of porcelain was produced by Chamberlain Worcester in England, circa 1820. This is one of the more uncommon patterns; the hand painted design is richly decorated and painted. We really like the way the charming Chinese figure has been painted, in particular the fine details in his colorful hat and the vivid colors chosen for his clothes. The pattern features extensive gilding, unusually it has a coppery pearlescent coloring that really makes it stand out. In the pattern we also see Chinoiserie inspired buildings and foliage, the ground is the traditional Imari palette. The cup also features a fancy gilt gadrooned rim and an ornate fan handle. The inner foot rim is marked in red with pattern number 767. Interestingly each cup or saucer decorated in this pattern has some variation in the figure, other examples are found stood in different poses or are painted doing other activities.
Measuring: Diameter with handle 3 5/8” (9 cm). Diameter without handle 2 7/8” (7.5 cm). Height 2.5”
The cup is in very condition with no restoration, though there is one single clean chip to the rim. The gilding is bright and crisp and is in very good condition. The hand painted design is crisp and bright and is very good condition.
This is a high quality cup from one of the best factories offered in one of the more uncommon patterns.
