This is an exceptionally beautiful Sarreguemines sauce boat with a fixed under plate, beneath the bowl, to gracefully catch any spills. The transfer pattern is named "Castle" and the mark dates it between 1920-1930.
This would look wonderful as a table centerpiece at dinner parties. It is elegantly shaped with a smooth, flowing lip and delicate leaves and flowers all the way around. The central motif illustrates a hillside château with a narrow river running past on one side and a wider river flowing through countryside on the other, so it looks lovely from every angle.
If you collect blue and white china and love French ironstone transfer ware to create antique table-scapes then this would make a stunning centerpiece for a fragrant bouquet. It would make a great soap dish too.
The world famous 'Sarreguemines' pottery was established in 1775 in the Lorraine region. Production finally ceased in 1979, making these pieces incredibly sought after and hard to find.
It is in fabulous condition with no chips at all. It has the beginnings of 'hairline' crackle to the glaze, which is to be expected with the age of this piece and in no way detracts from its beauty or functionality, in fact it simply adds to its charm and authenticity.
It measures 27cms /10½" long x 16cms/6¼" wide x 9cms/3½" deep.
It weighs 600gms/ 1.3lbs.
