Here is a compelling piece of creamware in a very satisfying and elaborate shape, molded with many baroque elements. Creamware was a ceramic body that could be thinly formed and intricately molded, so the hundreds of makers in Staffordshire and other areas of England vied to produce elegant shapes for their wares. This sauceboat, intended for use at the dinner table, has a wonderfully graceful shape. Please look at the photos. It begs to be picked up and admired. The Leeds-type strap handle is attached at the bottom with an appliqué of flowers and leaves. Damage is minimal: a small chip to the inside of the top rim and several hairlines in the bottom. It is seven inches long, three and seven-eighths inches high and displays as perfect.
