Flow Blue Miniature Gravy Tureen Sauce Boat
~ Charles Meigh Staffordshire England c1840

This is a very scarce miniature gravy boat or sauce tureen made for childs play or to accessorize an elegant pre-Victorian dollhouse. The color is a brilliant flow blue against a creamy earthenware base, finished with pearlware glaze. The tiny piece stands 2-1/16 inches high and measures 3-1/8 inches long, with a scalloped rim. Decorated with finely engraved hopberries and which look like oriental lanterns hanging from branches and vines. The pattern is shown in both a miniature dinner service and matching tea set in Lorraine Punchards Playtime Pottery and Porcelain from the UK.

The pitcher was made by Charles Meigh, and esteemed pottery manufacturer in the Staffordshire ‘Potteries’ region of England in the early part of the 19th century. It is unmarked, as were many of the wares by Meigh.
The gravy is in great condition with a flea bite sized glaze flake on the underside of the spout, and no other chips cracks or repairs. Transfer wrinkles glaze crazing and other minor imperfections typical of the period. An extremely hard to find flow blue pattern and form, a perfect addition to an advanced collection of miniature transferware. A superb example of an early miniature dinner set. As shown, as described.
