Description A Rare Chamberlain's Worcester Porcelain Beaker decorated with a Green Winged Dove probably by James Rogers, Circa 1810.

The beaker is finely painted in coloured enamels with a beautiful dove within a gilt and green rectangular panel and titled in black ""Green Winged Dove"". The reverse is decorated with gilt leaf scrolls all on a gilt green ground band. The size of this beaker is a half-pint.

According to G. Godden, the attribution to James Rogers is based upon the fact that he appears to be the only bird painter active at that time. R.W. Binns listed him as a bird painter. The name is included in the Chamberlain wage records from 1792, and he was employed until at least November 1813.

Dimensions: 4 inches high (10 cm)
Literature Godden, Geoffrey. Chamberlain-Worcester Porcelain, 1788-1852, page 125, plate 148 shows a pierced dish from circa 1810 decorated with a bullfinch. Godden comments that the bird subject is an unusual feature.
