Vintage Minton Marlow Bone China Gravy Boat / Sauce Boat and Saucer S-309 - As Found
This piece is not perfect and does have a flaw.
The saucer is marked with the Wreath stamp but also has a date mark for 1958, the sauce boat has the old globe stamp dating between 1938 and 1958 but probably towards the end of the period to be paired with a 1958 saucer, this pattern is now discontinued. I will be listing more pieces in this pattern.
I have included a number of photos and these probably describe the item better than I can and form part of the description. Everyone has different considerations when purchasing items and if you need any further information, please feel free to contact me and I will try to help.
Condition: The sauce boat has a hairline that show inside the jug and to a lesser extent on the outside, there are no chips or crazing. There is a small mark to the underside of the saucer. The odd small spot of wear to the gilding, but generally the gilding is in a good condition. Please see photos.
Size: Saucer 20cm ( 8") long. Combiner weight 498 grams.
Please feel free to ask any questions but please please ask through . Unfortunately, selling on generates a lot of spam and dubious emails and I now only respond to questions placed directly through . I will try to answer questions as soon as possible, but this will normally be in the evening. There are times where I may not be able to reply within 24 hours but I will reply well before the listing ends.
UK Postage & Packing
I am always happy to combine postage but please contact me before paying to arrange the most suitable method. Unless I am offering free postage I tend to charge P&P at Cost plus 15-20% to cover packaging materials & other charges. Items under 2kg and fit into a box 45x35x16cm will be sent by Royal Mail for which I charge £3.40. Larger or heavier items will be sent by courier. Up to 2kg £4.70 , up to 5kg £6.95 and up to 10kg £9 (there are some exceptions to this for large items). If the items have a value of over £25 and upto £100 an additional £2.22 may be added for insurance and signature. There may also be a surcharge for delivery to the Islands and Highlands. I will still happily send an item by any of the Royal Mail services if you prefer (Standard,Confirmed,Special Delivery) so please just let me know and I will provide a quote.
I am always happy for collection in person or for a buyer to arrange their own courier which may be cheaper for the winning bidder. Hermes is preferred for UK collection as we have an exceptionally good delivery man.
International items under 2kg will still be sent via Royal Mail, in fact it is now cheaper to send some items to Australia than it is to the UK when using Royal Mail. I will quite happily post most items overseas but if I have not already provided international prices please ask me for postage costs before bidding.
I will not post to Italy, Some of the Middle East, South America or Africa (Except South Africa). International items sent by courier will require a contact telephone number.
PO Box Address
Couriers from the UK will not deliver to PO Box numbers. Please provide an alternative address if you normally have your parcels sent to a PO Box address and the parcel is over 2kg in weight.
I do try to recycle boxes and other materials wherever possible and will sometimes use newspaper for padding out, if it does not have any impact on the cost of postage.
