Fine Early First Period Dr Wall Worcester Pedestal Sauceboat

A Fine Early Worcester Pedestal Sauceboat, the oval form moulded on either side with scrolled cartouches, painted in underglaze blue with the ‘Sinking Boat Fisherman’ pattern, the interior with a further Chinese riverscene and border decoration of hatched diaper, leaves and flowering prunus.

The smallest of three sizes of Pedestal Sauceboat. Examples of this pattern vary enormously in quality and the arrangement of the details, this example is a particularly fine rendering. The pattern is found, as a rule, only on pedestal sauceboats although there is a recording of just one example of a hexagonal creamboat which also bears the pattern.

Circa 1755

Dimensions:   Length: 6 ins (15 cms)
