- Details: This pretty transferware gravy boat is in the very popular, very much imitated, Moss Rose pattern. It is fine porcelain and features a large pink rose alongside semi-opened buds. There are green stems and leaves and also some very thin sprigs of light blue flowers. The reason it’s called Moss Rose is the hairy or “wispy” edge on these roses, made growers think they resembled moss. The piece has a lovely intricate handle and a scalloped rim. The bottom is embossed with leaf shapes and there are scrolls embossed around the rim. It is stamped on the bottom “Wtoctawek Made in Poland”. If you’re looking to complete your set of Moss Rose, please be very careful, this pattern was made by many different manufacturers through the years like: Bavarian, Sango, Fine China of Japan, Pompadour, Wedgwood of Etruria, Royal Sealy and others. They all look similar but there are variations. If that is not important to your collection efforts then you will find an extensive selection of pieces, sizes and shapes in Moss Rose. Hope this piece enhances your table! Makes a great hostess gift, maybe with a little plant or flower arrangement inside.

The Moss Rose pattern was named for an heirloom variety of rose, which became popular in the Victorian era. Moss Rose was first introduced as a dinnerware/china pattern in the early 1800’s. Believed to have originated in England the pattern became very popular, and because of its popularity, the pattern has been produced/copied by several companies (some listed in the “Details”). Some of the most productive manufacturers were in England, France and Japan. The popularity of this pattern declined in the early 1900’s but became popular again in post-war Japan as a popular American import up to the 1960’s.
