Chamberlains oval platter, East India Company crest & superb blue rose border, c. 1825

$950.00 AUD

Unusual Chamberlain’s Worcester oval meat platter, the centre with a fine hand-painted monotone crest of a Rampart lion holding crown, the crest of the English East India Company, within gilt foliate border and bold band of on glaze blue roses & foliage to the rim.

Impressed ‘CHAMBERLAIN’S’ to centre base,

31 x 26cm

 

The crest indicates a link with the East India Company; with no record of a Chamberlain’s service like this apparent in the literature, it may be a member of the company has commissioned the crest on a service, ,rather than an official ‘Company Service’. Beautiful quality in every respect, and excellent condition.
