Pair of York Silver Sauce Ladles, 1802 HP&C
Sauce Ladles (pair) - Old English Pattern - York 1802 by Hampston, Prince & Cattles - 16.3cm long; 88g combined weight - CM/1943
York silver is relatively scarce and sauce ladles are very rarely seen - particularly in old English pattern and at this early date.
Made by the three-way partnership of Hampston, Prince & Cattles, these silver sauce ladles bear clear York hallmarks for 1802 (n.b. the York town mark was very rarely applied to flatware). The pair are in excellent condition with no personalised engravings (and none have been erased).
