Size and Weight: (values are approximate)

  • 5" (140mm) in height to the top of the cover finial.
  • 5" (140mm) in length.
  • 4" (100mm) max. width.
  • 16oz (474gms) total weight.

Marks:

There are no manufacturer's marks on the sucrier or cover. It is from the Chamberlain's Worcester factory c1795; characterised by the tram line spiral fluting and mushroom shape to the finial.

Condition:

This beautifully elegant sucrier and cover are generally in good condition, with mainly some signs of wear.

There is a fair amount of gilding wear, particularly to the loop handles and rim of the sucrier. One loop handle has a tiny firing crack, this from the manufacturing process, not damage.

 

The body of the sucrier has a few areas where there is some kiln smut in the glaze - like fine black speckles, this again a manufacturing flaw rather than later damage. There are also a few areas of light crazing of the glaze.

On the underside of the cover's rim there are some rough unglazed areas with a couple of small chips, these again could be from the time of manufacture and are insignificant.

 

Although there seems to be quite a list of slight flaws from manufacture, this is still a very desirable Chamberlain's Worcester sucrier and cover for any collector.
