An extremely rare yellow border Chamberlain Worcester cake or bread and butter plate dating from c1800. Yellow is the rarest colour to find used on early English porcelain due to the complex nature of the firing; it was unstable and so almost impossible to produce. As such, yellow ground porcelains were very expensive and sought after at the time and a rare item for collectors to find today.
