Williamsburg Chelsea Birds 64 oz. Pitcher made by Mottahedeh Vista Alegre c. 1996. Excellent condition, measures 7 1/2"x6"x9". Weight 2 pds. Porcelain produced at Chelsea in London in the eighteenth century is regarded by many as the apex of English ceramic art. Among the most treasured pieces of Chelsea are those decorated in the workshop of James Giles with his birds of “distinctly disheveled appearance.” Mottahedeh's Chelsea Bird pattern has been adapted from Giles’ originals in the Colonial Williamsburg collection.
