Description:  These triangular shaped, slant sided boats have triangular shaped bases and twisted handles. They generally have similar dimensions but, the 3rd boat is a later, considerably smaller example and is marked: “CHINA”. The stands resemble leafs but are not as exaggerated as the more common leaf dishes with the more curved tips.  The boats have glazed bottoms but, all the stands are unglazed.

The boats and stands are considered scarce but not rare.
