Sterling china Ahwahnee Hotel gravy sauce boat Yosemite
Nice sauce boat or gravy boat made by Sterling China USA. Measures 3 1/4" tall to the top of the handle, and is 6 5/8" long. No chips, scratches, stains or cracks. Jeannette Dyer-Spencer designed the Ahwahnee logo, known as "Three-legged Indian," based on an actual California Indian basket pattern. This dish ware design, used in the hotel dining room of the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite since opening day in 1927. New pieces are available for purchase from the source but the new gravy boats only have the pattern on one side. This has the pattern on BOTH sides, so is older.
