An extremely Rare Pair of Large Worcester Partridge Sauce Tureens and Covers

red-dot

An extremely Rare Pair of Large Worcester Partridge Sauce Tureens and Covers, both the Hen and the Cock bird very naturalistically modelled seated on nests, coloured with a very close attention to the detail of the colours of the English Partridge.

Circa 1755-58.

The largest of three sizes produced by the Worcester Factory and from a close examination of the paste and the glaze from the production of the first decade.

Worcester produced only two naturalistic tureens and covers, the cauliflower and the partridge. Examples that are more naturalistic in colour are the earlier forms and a look at the greyish paste and basketweave moulding confirms the early date. The holes for sauce ladles are very rare.
