Strasbourg Sauce Dish

This is a rare gravy boat /sauceboat made in Strasbourg in the early 1750's. The factory was founded by Karl Franz Hannong as an earthenware maker around 1721 but soon after his son Paul Anton took over the factory around 1732. After he went into partnership with Ringler he began the production of porcelain. The competition with Vincennes forced him to close the factory and move it to Frankenthal which also used this mark in their first two years of production but usually with an F behind it. The sauce dish has a really nice shape and is handpainted with two superb floral arrangements as well as lots of scattered flowers, some gold trim and some really nice relief work to the paste. An extremely rare piece to find from a rare maker. The pot is marked with two impressed PH marks as well as an incised letter T (I think - hard to see and make out). The piece is in great condition with two chips to the foot as shown and a minor chip to the tip of the spout but mostly underneath. An original firing crack was painted over with a leaf of a small flower. The chips don't take away from the piece at all! The sauciere is 6.75 inches tall, 8.25 inches long and 4.25 inches wide.

Price is $1999
