Camp Sauce Label by Elizabeth Morley
Sauce Label - Camp; Cut-cornered Rectangle - London circa 1807 by Elizabeth Morley - 2.5cm wide - NV/6864</p>
"CAMP" is a very rare name on silver sauce labels and this Georgian example remains in fine condition (some scratching to reverse). it was made by the lady silversmith Elizabeth Morley during the first decade of the 19th century when Camp Vinegar first became popular and bears a clear example of her "EM" maker's mark.
Camp Vinegar was a strongly flavoured sauce usually with garlic, cayenne, soy or walnut ketchup. The original recipe came from 'A New System Of Domestic Cookery' by 'A Lady' (Mrs. Maria Eliza Ketelby Rundell) in 1807. See The Foods of England Project website for more.
