Genuine/Original White Star Line Bouillon Saucer
Used in 1st and possibly 2nd class, this saucer is from the deck service. Probably used for bouillon (Bovril) or hot chocolate, these saucers were made from brownstone china; a lesser quality than the usual bone china, so more durable in an effort to reduce breakages out on deck.
Although they bore no pattern, the saucer is finished in gold leaf around the rim to denote 1st or maybe 2nd class.
The saucer is in excellent condition with only the usual glaze marks and the tiniest nibble under the rim and the WSL burgee in the centre is clear.
