This matching pair of molded sauceboats from the porcelain factory at Lowestoft on the east coast of England was made c.1780-85. They are molded on the surface and feature panels framed by scrolls, reserved on a ribbed ground, printed in blue with flower sprays. The molding is sharp and clear. The Lowestoft factory sometimes had problems firing their porcelain, and this pair shows some discoloration at the edges, probably for that reason. Dimensions are a little over six inches long. One has no damage. The other has a meandering crack down one side, across the bottom and about an inch up the other side, with one small chip on the foot. Together since 1785!
