Richard Chaffers is often hailed as the hero of Liverpool. Chaffers worked in Liverpool originally as an earthenware potter,

making delft for the export trade. He began working in soaprock and bone ash porcelains about 1755. His whimsical painting,

sometimes cartoonish, reflects more the nature and charm of delft than does the slick perfection of contemporary Worcester

 porcelains. The sauceboat above is rarer in palette than the usual blue and white or famille rose type of decoration, with a

beautiful tapestry-like central medallion to the interior.
