Description A fine and rare pair of Worcester partridge tureens and covers, naturalistically modelled with the covers resembling the birds, and their plumage painted in exquisite detail, with their heads tilted to the side. The bases are modelled after partridge nests and applied with a colourful band of leaves, feathers, and stalks.

'Partridges Enamel'd' sold for 7 shillings each in Worcester's London warehouse in 1755 and 1756.

Researchers group these birds in the Phasianidae family along with pheasants, grouse, and quails. They are usually between the larger pheasant and the smaller quail in size.
