LATE 19TH CENTURY ANTIQUE LARGE PORCELAIN ROYAL WORCESTER GRECIAN WATER CARRIER .


Royal Worcester was established in 1751 and is believed to be the oldest or second oldest remaining English porcelain brand still in existence today (this is disputed by Royal Crown Derby, which claims 1750 as its year of establishment). Part of the Portmeirion Group since 2009, Royal Worcester remains in the luxury tableware and giftware market, although production in Worcester itself has ended.


This Magnificent 30” TALL Royal Worcester Grecian Water Carrier has been in my family since 1963. I literally grew up with her and she has been in our homes for over the last 58 years. When my mother passed in 2002, she came home with me .


This female figure modelled standing, draped, her right hand supporting a double-handled container on her head, her left holding an amphora, impressed and printed factory marks underside. Her Height is 30 inches tall, and she is one of the largest Water Carrier ever produced. The custom base measures 4 inches in height giving her a total of 34 inches in height.


Her condition is very very good with fingers in tact , no cracks or chips on the body of the piece at all accept for very minor flaking at her base. There is one surface hairline fracture on her upper left arm that DOES NOT go through. The arm is stable, and photos of the area have been taken from all angles to show you from the outside to the underside of her arm.


Her intricate draped garb is absolutely gorgeous. Her gold leaf amphora and container on her head were redone in gold leaf over 30 years ago .


The base was custom made for her back in 1963 to be able to wire her for a Silk Lamp Shade. You will see the brass piece connected to her custom base that held the brass heavy mounting to her shade.

She has NEVER been altered in any way to display as a lamp, and is in her exact form as a statue. She seats directly in this base. The base has minor blemishes, and displays beautifully .


I ask you to please not contact me unless you have serious interest, and understand the value and antiquity of this fine piece. I’m negotiable to a point, but she warrants a very fair price as she is “RARE”’especially for her size.


She is a decorators dream piece, and I hope to see her go to a good home to be enjoyed for years to come, and to end up in the hands of those who will appreciate her quality. I did speak to a porcelain restorer concerning her hairline on her upper right arm, and she can be restored in that area if one finds it imperative to do so. Otherwise she can simply be displayed and just look as beautiful as she is in her current very good condition.
