Robert Chamberlain left his role as chief decorator at Warmstry House Worcester to set up his own decorating shop. At first he purchased porcelain blanks to decorate, however by 1788-9 he was firing his own.

Eric Knowles Comments: The same decoration is found on John Pennington Liverpool. See Maurice Hills. However the moulded S could is a very rare Caughley mark.
