A very rare and Early Dr Wall Worcester Flat Bottomed Sauceboat

An extremely rare and early Dr Wall Worcester Flat bottomed Sauceboat, exceptionally well moulded in the silver taste in crisp low relief with scrolled rococo panels issuing leaves and flowers, the scrolled borderwork enclosing two panels each painted in the chinese famille verte palette with multicoloured birds looking at insects in flight perched on flowering branches of prunus. The interior with a scene of a Crane strutting on an island issuing reeds, the border and beneath the spout decorated with trailing sprays of stylised Indianische blumen of flowering oriental plants and leaves.

Circa 1753-54

A low moulded sauceboat and only recorded in one size it is a shape that was developed at Lund’s Bristol under the keen auspices of Benjamin Lund who pionnered the development of the silver form into porcelain production through his constant evolution of paste and glaze. Absorbed too here are the elements chosen from a broad Chinese style and blended with the enameller’s idea of a sophisticated Meissen Indianische blumen style which is now incorporated into a style of pattern favoured at Worcester during the period of 1753-54. This blend of pattern also encapsulates a brief example of Kakiemon too in the stylised floral evocation of the chrysanthemum flowers.
