This large comport (it weighs in at 1.69kg) is by Chamberlain Worcester and is decorated with Fancy Birds in the manner of George Davis, the colours of which are still vibrant. It is unmarked but the gadrooned edge is typical of Chamberlains. Examples can be seen in Colour Plate XII and plate 152, amongst others, in Chamberlain-Worcester Porcelain by Geoffrey Godden 1992. The diameter of the bowl is 284mm and it stands 148mm high. The bowl is supported by four lions paw legs onto a square, stepped base with canted corners and concave sides. The underside of the bowl is decorated with gilding as are the legs and base. Overall its condition is very good, but I have noted the following faults-some very minor loss of the gilding, mainly to the high spots, a 5mm long firing crack to the base of the footrim of the bowl where it joins the base, some glaze faults ex the kiln, two very small areas where glaze inclusions have broken off and some very faint scratches to the paint. Some of these faults are barely noticeable to the naked eye. C1820.
