1088 - A crisply moulded saltglaze stoneware sauceboat c 1750-55
Of a low shape with silver inspired moulded scrolls and basketweave ground. Sauceboats of this shape seem to be derived from the mould-maker Aaron Wood who sold moulds to all the leading potteries which produced variants of the design. Sauceboats derived from this shape were made by ten or more porcelain factories and a number can be seen on this site: 1074, 1081, 1085, 1089, and 1090.
18 cms long and in excellent condition. Illustrated in my book, British Porcelain Sauceboats of the 18th Century, Figure 28.
