Eric Knowles Comments

In his 'Chamberlain Worcester 1788-1852' Geoffrey Godden discusses this botanical dessert service stating that the service is finely painted with accurate botanical specimens , the work of a leading artist. Another aspect of this service contributing to its original high price is the sparseness of the decoration which leaves a large area of porcelain showing. This necessitated only the very best unblemished blanks being used whereas all-over Japan patterns tended to cover most of the service with the result that slightly faulty 'seconds'could be used for such designs
