This is a nice example of an Art Deco sauceboat.
The low footed body has a wide pouring spout, which curved steeply downwards to meet the rim. The latter sweeps up to become continues with the angular handle. The body is hand painted with a simple striped design. The shape of the handle is accentuated by fine black lines.
The foot rim is raised and the centre of the sauceboat bears the words ‘EMPIRE SHELTON IVORY ENGLAND’ and the hand painted number ‘104/794 10’.
It has a maximum height of approximately 8.9cm and a diameter at the foot rim of about 7.5cm.
It is in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks, although there is a small burst bubble on the foot rim. This is a manufacturing artefact.
