Description: These Gravy Tureens are fairly common. They are octagonal in shape and are a mirror image of their much larger brothers the octagonal Soup Tureens. The tureens are distinguished by their Boar’s head handles and feather or helmet knobs. The tops have the Canton scene and the rain cloud border as do the stands. The bottoms do not have the rain cloud borders. The smaller tureen on the right has a Chinese symbol (?) on the glazed bottom. It is also more oval in shape.

Prices are influenced if they are not complete with their stands.

These gravy tureens are illustrated on page 224 of Herbert Schiffer’s 1975 book and in Jane Wilson’s 1977 booklet on page 12.
