Vintage Taylor Smith Conversation Prairie Gravy Boat w/ Under plate - Mid century Serving TST Walter Dorwin Teague Gravy Boat w/ Saucer


This is a vintage gravy boat and under plate (saucer) in the Conversation pattern that was made by TAYLOR, SMITH & T (TS&T) in the mid century. I believe this particular design was the Walter Dorwin Teague design by the famous American designer who was recognized as a designer who was an important influence in the spread of mid century modernism.

While the Conversation pattern by TST has many color variations, this one has an ivory background, brown trim on the handle and edges and a mustard yellow and green stripe on each piece. The saucer or under plate is a rounded rectangle shape. The gravy boat has a trim elongated shape and a great handle with a flat top portion that then curves toward where it attaches to the base of the bowl.

This pattern is long since discontinued - it is circa 1950s.

It is signed on the bottom - TAYLOR SMITH TAYLOR/U.S.A./250/ (within rectangular curved ribbon banner) CONVERSATION DESIGN BY/WALTER DORWIN TEAGUE and has the number 29 stamped there as well. See Photos.

Gravy boat - 7 1/2" long x 3" wide. It is approx. 3 1/3" high.
Saucer (under plate) - 8 1/2" x 5 1/4"

This gravy boat and saucer is in nice vintage condition with no chips or cracks. There is some color loss on the trim - see photos for detail. Item's price reflects this condition.

Overall its still pretty cute and has a great mod shape!

    No, we are not comfortable providing pricing or answering questions about the value or worth of vintage or antique items. We believe they are worth what someone will pay for them.
