A very attractive form, this Chinese export porcelain stap-handled sauceboat with its original lozenge-shaped stand is handpainted in the Sepia Fitzhugh pattern and bearing the initial H. Made for the American market, with the possibility of being ordered for one of two services: either for John Hone (1764-1832) of New York, or John Dandridge Henley (1781-1835) of Virginia. Other than some wear to the enamels on the stand, the pieces are in very good condition, measuring 7″ across. Circa 1820.
