1084 - A rare Christian Liverpool sauceboat with polychrome decoration c 1770.
Painted in bright polychrome enamels this sauceboat has a shape rarely seen in Christian wares, owing more to a shape of sauceboat more often seen at Lowestoft. 15 cms long.
There are two small chips on the rim and the deliberate crimp in the rim shape has resulted in a stress crack (c 2cms) on one side. Another stress crack to the lower handle terminal.
Illustrated in my book, British Porcelain Sauceboats of the 18th Century, Figure 321.
