This vintage Jack Spratt gravy boat is so unusual and fun! In a fabulous chartreuse green, this handled gravy boat was made by California ceramics company Northington Inc. in the 1950s. Wondering why it's labeled Jack Spratt? Remember the nursery rhyme?

Jack Spratt could eat no fat
His wife could eat no lean
And so betwixt the two of them
They licked the platter clean

This gravy boat is called 'Jack Spratt' because it has one side labeled 'F' for fat, and one labeled 'L' for lean, which has a built in skimmer to eliminate the fat as you pour. A quirky, fun, and functional vintage piece!

Condition: In absolutely perfect condition. No chips, cracks, scratches, or repairs. Color is bright and vivid.

2.5 inches tall
8.5 inches from spout to spout
7 inches from end of handle to outside of gravy boat
