This pretty Plantation Colonial individual gravy boat was made by Mason's, England for Carl Forslund of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Equally serviceable as a creamer, the transfer design is on both the front and the back. The Plantation Colonial pattern, also known as Regency Plantation Colonial, number C4475, features large poppy-like flowers in shades of medium to cobalt blue accented with smaller blossoms in pinks, yellows, and pale greens. The flowers swirl together on scrolling vines of cobalt blue with green leaves. A small garden creature in shades of yellow to russet crawls on the ground. The rim is encircled by a narrow band of cobalt blue scrolls.
Carl Forslund owned a furniture store and a mail order catalog company in Grand Rapids, Michigan from 1933 into the early 1990s. Mason's made ironstone pieces for Carl Forslund sometime between 1933 and the 1960s. The backstamp, in indigo blue, is the Mason's crown mark and tablecloth banner with "Patent Ironstone" inside. The words "Plantation Colonial Made in England by Mason's" are printed above the crown, with the words "for Carl Forslund Grand Rapids Michigan" below. There are also incised letters and black stamped letters on the bottom.
This pretty gravy measures 5-1/2 inches across the handle and pouring spout and 2-inches wide. It is just 2-1/2 inches high.
There are no condition issues. The dust seen in the bottom in the photos has been cleaned.
