This is a very fine china gravy boat with an attached underplate that was produced by Seltmann in Weiden Germany. It is the Marie Luise pattern of china. The gravy boat is white with gold trim around all the edges.
There is a backstamp on the bottom that shows a crown, Marie Luise, Seltmann, Weiden Germany. Weiden is in the Bavarian part of Germany.
We think that this gravy boat was produced in the 1950-1960's.
There is a simple elegance to this piece and is a fine example of the china that the Seltmann company produced.
The piece measures approximately 8 and 1/4 inches long (measuring the attached underplate) and is approximately 5 1/2 inches wide.
This beautiful gravy boat is in excellent vintage condition. There is minimal wear on the base. There is very little wear if any on the gold trim. There are no chips, cracks or crazing.
