1105 - A fine Worcester sauceboat with dog's head handle, c 1753-4
Early Worcester sauceboats are some of the best when it comes to exploiting the soapstone paste in moulded pieces. The crisp nature of the moulding on this sauceboat is a good example.
This rare sauceboat is in excellent condition. It is 23 cms long. Enamels are substantially intact and there is slight glaze spit on the handle.
