This architectural Gravy Boat by Crescent China, with its Ultra skyscraper shape and stylized Deco Tulip (aka Leigh Paris) design is a rare Art Deco find! Creamy beige "Umbertone" semi-porcelain trimmed in dark reddish brown outlines with fantastical tulip decals in Miami Beach colors: fuchsia pink, periwinkle blue, & golden butterscotch amidst yellow and green leaves with black & lavender zigzags...platinum racing stripes on the handles creates a spectacular effect!

Sports an angular stair-step handle enhanced with platinum racing stripes and several hatch lines down its back in butterscotch orange, and sits balanced upon a rectangular, triple-beveled foot. Maker’s mark on bottom in gold ink “Sienna Ware” with “The Crescent China Co.” encircled by a slender crescent moon. It measures approx. 3 – 3.5” high, and 8 5/8” from spout to handle [8cm by 22cm].

The Crescent China Company operated in Ohio from 1920-1926, then sold to Leigh Potters, who produced their line from 1926-1931. This pattern was thus known as "Deco Tulip" (or thereabouts) by Crescent, and "Paris" by Leigh.

We have more in this pattern, see our Vintage Dinnerware China, Porcelain, Glass, Retro Plastique section for more details: http://www.etsy.com/shop/SusabellaBrownstein?section_id=6280769

In fair-to-good vintage condition – overall crazing, a couple of glaze disturbances, a few nibbles on the base of the foot, and a minor hairline crack near spout - see photos for more detail.

PLEASE NOTE: Vintage and antique dishes were often decorated with glazes containing varying amounts of lead, a toxic chemical. If you have a concern, please research before purchasing. To minimize exposure to lead when using vintage dinnerware, please observe the following precautions: use infrequently; do not expose to high heat, including microwaves, ovens, and dishwashers; avoid contact with acidic foods & liquids, especially if cracked or crazed (slight crackling of the clear overglaze); do not use to store food or liquids; hand wash with a gentle detergent soon after use and allow to air dry.
