These exceptional antique Scottish sterling silver Georgian sauceboats have an oval rounded form.
The body of each sauceboat is embellished with impressive later flat engraved scrolling leaf decoration accented with a range of birds designs, both perched and in flight.
The decoration to each body incorporates a shaped scrolling leaf bordered cartouche to the underside of the lip of each fine sauceboat, displaying a bright cut engraved crest of an eagle collared and chained rising, wings elevated and addorsed, charged with three crescents and grasping a serpent nowed.
Each sauceboat is ornamented with an impressive applied bead decorated border to the upper rim.
These 18th century sauceboats are fitted with cast elongated C shaped handles, featuring impressive leaf decorated thumbpieces.
Each of these fine examples of Georgian silverware is supported by an oval pedestal foot to a collet style rim.
The foot is encircled with further applied bead decoration and embellished with a flat engraved floral and foliate design to either side.
