David Foord-Brown Antiques

Fine 18th Century & early 19th Century English Furniture, Porcelain & Old Sheffield Plate Silver



A CHAMBERLAIN & CO. WORCESTER VASE, CIRCA 1840 Of Warwick vase form, painted with a view of “The Port of London” an array of boats with the Tower of London visible in the distance, within a raised gilt scroll-edged cartouche, reserved on a deep blue ground, with twisted stem & vine leaf gilt handles and a white pearl beaded waist, on a pedestal base with vermicule gilding and with a formal border of anthemions and floral garlands within the rim. Illustrated by Geoffrey Godden, Chamberlain Worcester Porcelain p.300, pl.393 together with a companion vase showing London Bridge. The finely painted view is copied from an engraving by WH Bartlett and R. Sands, published in William Finden’s The Ports, Harbours, Watering-Places and Coast Scenery of Great Britain, published by George Virtue between 1836-1842. Although this vase is marked Chamberlain & Co, placing it after the amalgamation of the two Worcester factories (Chamberlain & Flight Barr & Barr) it follows all of the artistic traditions of Flight Barr & Barr, and is likely to have been cast from moulds from this factory and decorated by a former Flight artist and gilder.
