A fine Lowestoft porcelain strap-handled creamboat, the ovoid molded body with an undulating rim. Hand painted in a dark blue with the "Two Porter Landscape" pattern, which features two figures in a landscape with trees and birds. The reverse side, the interior center, the rim, and the lip all with floral sprays.
This particular example is particularly uncommon because of the small size, being almost an inch less in length than other examples. A "17" workman's mark is on the bottom rim.
The actual size is 4" in length, 2" in width, and 1 7/8" tall. The condition also sets this apart, with deep and unblurred color, no paint loss, and no chips. body cracks, or restoration. There is a very tight 1/2" glaze separation on the bottom, near the rim, of no aesthetic or value impact.
