On offer is an English Worcester salopian soft paste porcelain sauceboat. The soapstone porcelain body is relief molded with blue printed floral decoration to include the rim and the inside. This would date to the 1770's and has a greenish translucence when held up to a light. The bottom has the crescent mark and there is a slightly bluish glaze as expected. Several factories made these and in several sizes.The majority found have some condition issue unlike this one which is pristine.
Dimensions: Length from handle to spout is 6 1/2" and width is 3 3/4". Height to top of handle is 3 3/4"
Condition: Excellent. here are no chips or cracks and there is no restoration. The glaze is smooth and unworn and the transferprint is clear and unworn, even on the inside. There is a slight in-the-making line under the handle as shown which is hardly noticeable and does not go through to the inside.
Early period antiques are quite old, were made to be used, and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing flaw or repair. While this is normal and to be expected, I note any known issues in the condition description.
