Large Georgian Sauce Boat, 1779
Sauce/Gravy Boat - Punched Bead rim - London 1779 by Benjamin Mountigue - 18.4cm long; 10.8cm high; 218g - OB/6760
This is a really attractive, stylish and good-sized Georgian silver sauce boat. With its good hefty weight, it has a wonderful feel in the hand. The condition is fantastic as it retains its original patina and has neither damage nor repairs. It stands on 3 hoof feet and has a flying scroll handle. There is an original engraved crest to one side and a clear set of hallmarks underneath. From its size, it could be considered a large sauce boat or small gravy boat and would be perfectly practicable for both jobs.
