This sauce or gravy ladle is made with a delicate blue transfer design that rings the upper bowl and the tip of the handle. The top of the handle is also molded with a delicate scrolling design in the ironstone. The ladle is about 7 1/2 inches long and the bowl has a diameter of 2 3/4 inches. The handle, alone, has a length of 5 3/4 inches. There is a slight angulation in the upper handle to keep it from falling into the sauce dish. It is unmarked with respect to a maker or other identifier. There are is a minuscule chip in the glaze along the border of the ladle as seen in one of the images. There is no crazing. This is a lovely ladle and would be a great replacement piece but it would also be a wonderful addition to a collection or a display.
