A pair of Chamberlain Worcester Porcelain ‘Beaker Ornaments' with pierced lids c.1800. Each Beaker very finely painted in the manner of John Wood with classical scenes after Angelica Kauffman including ‘Venus attired by the Graces’ and ‘Cupid & Cephisa’. Each tumbler marked Chamberlain Worcester to the base and only one with the name of the scene.

Condition: Minor hairline crack to one beaker restored and some re-touching to the gilt on the tumblers. Stoppers to the pierced lids now lacking.
