A fine and early Dr. Wall Worcester sauce boat, of cos lettuce leaf form. This uncommon and molded example 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 pieces done at the Meissen factory.

There is some minor wear at some high points of the enamels, and wear on the interior flower. There are no chips, cracks, or restoration, and the overall condition is very fine. The length is 7".

An almost identical piece, though slightly larger, is offered elsewhere on the site as item p1106.
