A graceful blue Staffordshire gravy boat showing Euston (sometimes called Duston) Hall by Andrew Stevenson, c. 1820. The view is part of Stevenson’s Rose Border Series and depicts a large manor house surrounded by trees. There are animals grazing in the foreground and if the transfer hadn’t been cut to fit the shape, there would have been a pond with swans. Another snippet of the transfer is on the interior bottom and that includes a couple of swans. The border, both on the interior and exterior, includes wild roses. The piece is marked Euston Hall with Stevenson’s Urn & Swag printed mark.
The gravy boat is 4” high at the handle and the handle to spout distance is 7”. Very fine condition with nice pearlware glaze, good color and crisp transfer. The only “blemish” is a tiny edge flake off the inside rim that is about 1/8”.
