  • Details
    This is part of a gorgeous collection of this pattern that must have been stored for many decades before I came across them at an estate sale. The manufacturer's mark dates the pattern to 1933. When I saw them at the sale they were caked with dirt, but I couldn't help being enchanted by the very fine, delicate, and detailed pattern, and the versatility of the colors and design that appeared to be under the dirt. The beautiful design that emerged with some soaking and careful cleaning was even prettier than I imagined.

    Gravy boat measures 9-1/2""long x 6-1/4"w x 2-3/4"h The piece is in excellent condition, but does have a small chip on an end edge of its plate that has been repaired with gold fill so that it is minimally noticeable (see photo) and uncompromising to the integrity of the piece
