Wonderful and hard to find addition to your or someone you know collection of Currier and Ives China. manufactured by Royal China from 1950 - 1970 I have never seen a Gravy Boat Under plate with the Original Ladle. Set is in Excellent vintage condition with no cracks , chip, grazing or stains . No utensil marks that I notice and the pattern has no wear. A marvelous find. Royal China Produced this dinnerware as a promotional item featured at local A& P stores. They were available at deep discounts if you spent a certain amount of money on your groceries. They also offered completer sets such as this item on a weekly basis. The Gravy Boat measures 6" W handle to handle and 2 1/2" H at the lowest part. The pattern/picture on it is called The Road Winter. Under plate measures 8" tab to tab and is part of the "Hostess" set and features the pattern Old Oaken Bucket. The plain white/cream ladle measures 7" L X 2 1/2" W at the spoon part. It has a hole at the top for hanging it up.
