A superb and early Dr. Wall Worcester sauce boat, of cos lettuce leaf form. This uncommon example is leaf molded, has a looped stem handle, and is decorated inside and out with scattered flower sprigs and insects, finished with raised fruit near the handle juncture. A similar example is shown in S. Spero and J. Sandon, "Worcester Porcelain 1751-1790, The Zorensky Collection", 1996, p. 120, no. 88. This form and decoration is based on Meissen factory pieces.
The sauce boat is 7 1/4" long and has the label of Leo Kaplan, a noted New York City ceramics dealer. There are no chips, cracks, or restoration, and the overall condition is very fine. The length is 7".
An almost identical piece, though slightly smaller, is offered elsewhere on the site as item p1107.
