This is a nice Austrian porcelain oval open gravy boat with underplate. It has a garland of pink and white flowers around the rim and a ring of gold above the flowers and around the rim. The edge is scalloped. The background is bright white. The back of each piece has the manufacturer's mark – a crown, with two shields, Vienna and Austria.
There were reportedly four New York importers that used this mark. They were PH Leonard, Bawo & Dotter, Charles L. Dwenger and Paul A. Straub & Co. The mark was used on Vienna China from Count Thun's factory in KláSterec.
This may be pattern VNN9 or AU56.
It dates to around the early 1900's.
The gravy boat measures approximately 4" wide by 7" long and has a depth of approximately 2 ½". The underplate measures approximately 8 ½" by 6".
The condition is good. There are no chips or cracks. There is normal wear on the gold gilt and utensil marks.
