Wikipedia: Sauce boat
A sauce boat, gravy boat, or saucière is a low jug or pitcher with a handle in which sauce or gravy is served. The typical shape is considered boat-like, hence the name. It often sits on a matching saucer, sometimes attached to the pitcher, to catch dripping sauce.

Watching @DaveGorman on #modernlifeisgoodish wonder why gravy boats are called boats. It’s so you can call a collection the “gravy navy” :D
