I actually missed this on the first pass at the flea market last weekend, but when i went back to pick up a wee little uranium glass tumbler for the spouse, it jumped out at me: an Aesthetic transferware gravy boat, in pretty good shape, for the princely sum of three dollars.

I'm pretty sure i've seen this pattern before, but i don't for the life of me know what it is or who made it, and naturally, but for an indistinct number or letter scratched into the bottom (looks sort of like a backwards "7," but could conceivably be an "F," or, well, something else entirely...) this piece is completely unmarked. I'm reduced to sifting through image searches hoping to hit upon a marked piece in the same pattern... any hints gratefully accepted. So far the only matching piece i've spotted online is another gravy boat, slightly worse off than this one, also with something like a number on the bottom.
