The painting and gilding of the Chamberlains Worcester factory met the highest standards of porcelain manufacturers during the period of the late 1700s and the early 1800s. Robert Chamberlain and his son Humphrey were responsible for the decoration and gilding of the porcelains made in the original Worcester factory during the 1770s and 1780s. In 1793 they opened their own porcelain manufactory in Worcester: Chamberlains Worcester. By 1800, the Chamberlain Worcester factory was well established. Chamberlains Worcester and Flight Barr Worcester were the two leading manufacturers of English porcelains.
