Item: Flow Blue Handled Gravy Boat

Date: c. 1880

Maker: Unknown

Pattern: La Francaise, Semi Vitreous, A5 (form)

Size: 8" long, 3 1/2" tall

Prominent Colors: White with Flow Blue styling around the lip and handle, gold floral accents

Attributes/Key Words: Aesthetic Movement, Flowers, White porcelain

General Condition Report: Regarding all of the pieces - in many cases, the applied gold is worn partially or completely missing. Most pieces have crazing and some have minor bruising to the underside, not a big deal in my opinion. Anything that is worth reporting, I have taken additional close-up photographs, and reported below. I think these would all be fine additions to any collection.

This particular piece: The floral accents are applied gold. Not a lot of gold accent, but I would say it is 80% in tact; losses not terribly detrimental. This piece has NO chips, nicks, cracks, or crazing. Simply elegant.

Overall Condition: Very Good
