Very Fine and Early Chelsea Triangle Period Beaker


Very Fine and Early Chelsea Triangle Period Beaker

A very fine and early Chelsea Triangle Period Beaker, of lobed silver shape with scalloped rim, painted in the Kakiemon palette with a hoho bird painted in tones of yellow, blue and iron red and perched on a holed turquoise blue rock which issues flowering peonies.

Circa 1748

The shape emanates from the first ‘silver taste’ shape that the manufactory developed. The palette is Kakiemon and after the inspiration from the seventeenth century wares. The paste and glaze date from circa 1748 and exhibit use of tin oxide which can be seen on the inside of the rim. The pattern came to be popular at the Worcester manufactory during the First Period under Dr Wall.
