At my grandmother's Thanksgiving table, gravy issued forth from the mouth of a Dansk fish. It was perfect for her, but I'm in the market for something a little more traditional (and less "animalian"). And so I've been trolling all over in search of the ideal gravy boat. Here are my best finds.
Above: Graceful and balanced, Martha Stewart's gravy boat is the closest I've found to the classic antique version. Available at Macy's; $15.
Above: A slightly more contemporary take, this French-made porcelain gravy boat by Pillivuyt comes with a warming base that holds a tea light candle. Available at Williams-Sonoma; $79.95.
Above: Even more modern, West Elm's black stoneware gravy boat is currently on sale; $9.
Above: Another traditional option at a reasonable price, Luigi Bormioli's gravy boat is available at Bed, Bath and Beyond; $14.99.
Above: The Revol Porcelain Sauce Boat from France is $65 from Provisions at Food 52 (it's an exclusive).
Above: Heath Ceramic's versatile pouring bowl goes beyond the Thanksgiving table; $135.
Above: Leave it to Jasper Conran to adapt the classic porcelain gravy boat for the modern world. The Wedgwood Jasper Conran Gravy Boat is available at Bed, Bath, and Beyond; $89.99.
Above: The Noritake Colorwave Gravy Boat is $44.99 at Bed, Bath & Beyond.
Above: For mid-century fans, Crate and Barrel has brought back Eva Zeisel's Classic Century Sauce Boat first introduced in 1952; $49.95.
