Fett & Mager Sauce Dish

This is a very hard to find sauce / gravy boat dish made by Meissen in the 20th century. It has a very different shape and design than most sauce boats one finds and is labeled fett & mager on the two sides meaning fatty and lean. Depending out of which side you would pour the gravy you would either get the fatty top layer or the supposedly leaner bottom layer. This one here only has one handle but they often come with two as well. It still has its original lid to it with a nice pinecone finial. I don't think I have seen one with the polychrome strewn flowers design to it before. Looks really nice with all those colorful single flowers all over the piece and lid. All hand painted off course. A bit of gold trim to the edges and handle. A very nice looking piece especially in this shape and it is really hard to find as well! The sauciere is in perfect condition with just a minor spot of gold wear. It is about 4.5 inches tall, the lid has a diameter of 4.625 inches deep and the handle sticks out about an inch from the main body as do the spouts. The piece is marked underneath with the under glaze blue crossed swords mark as well as the usual impressed numbers, etc. and a painter's number as shown. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $599
