Sorry, this item is out of stock.

This is a very rare pap boat both in form and origin. Made in India during the early Victorian period, this pap boat bears the GG&Co mark for George Gordon & Company of Madras. It is a very unusual form by being a part-covered vessel with a pouring spout and richly gilt interior. An excellent example of a child's pap boat that remains in fine condition.

 

Pap boats were infant feeding vessels.
