Pewter Acorn and Oak Leaf Gravy Boat is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but not practical. I wanted this gravy boat from the first time I saw it on FrontGate. I thought it was stunning, but was put off by the high price. I thought about it for a long time and finally bought it for myself as a treat. When it arrived, I was thrilled. The gravy boat is every bit as beautiful as it is in the photographs. However, when I used it for the first time, I realized that while beautiful, it is not at all practical or useful as a gravy boat. First, it is much smaller than I thought it would be. It holds about 1/3 of a cup of gravy. In my family, that’s enough gravy for about 1 person. It is more suited as a creamer than a gravy boat. Second, it doesn’t pour well, so it needs a small ladle and a tray. I end up using a china saucer under it to both catch the drips and for support - which brings me to the most important problem with this gravy boat – the pewter itself. The pewter is very soft. The decorative twigs and leaves on the base of the boat that also serve as feet to hold the boat steady, bend very easily. I mean they’re so soft that pretty much just the weight of the gravy sitting in the boat bends them! Each time I use the gravy boat, I have to ever so carefully bend the branches back into shape so they will support the boat. Otherwise, the boat waddles and teeters around on its bottom. It is really nerve wracking because I am sure that one day, a branch will snap right off in my hand. I can’t believe that they would make a serving piece out of something so soft and malleable. In sum, given its size and its fragility, this beautiful gravy boat is not a useful serving piece. It now sits in my china cabinet as a lovely thing to look at. However, I regret very much the amount of money I spent on it.
