In the eighteenth century, sauce was offered to conceal the rather bland and often stale taste of certain meats. Sauceboats formed an important part of Worcester's early production, and many variations decorated with diverse patterns were manufactured. This pedestal sauceboat derives from the Bristol Porcelain Factory, a factory that merged with Worcester in 1752; it became a standard Worcester shape from the early 1750s until about 1758. Early designs were usually carefully contained within the molded panels and were simple so as not to clash with the subtlety of the relief molding.
