Description:  These gravy or sauce boats are quite attractive with their flowing lines and matching stands. They have double pouring lips as well as two side handles. These round loop handles split into “Y” attachment points. There is very little size differences among the boats and among the stands. Boats and stands have glazed bottoms.

At one time these boats were considered very rare but now we classify them as “rare”. They really are not complete without the matching stands.
