Description


These exceptional antique George III sterling silver tureens have a plain oval rounded form.


The lower portion of the each body is embellished with impressive chased fluted ornamentation encompassed with a plain paralleling border and incorporating a cartouche to either side.


The cartouche to one side of each remains vacant and the other bears the contemporary bright cut engraved crest depicting out of a tower a stag's head, encircled with the motto 'Tria juncta in uno' - Three joined in one, in addition to a suspended Military Badge of the Order of the Bath*.


The upper portion of these exceptional silver tureens are embellished with applied gadroon decorated borders to the upper shaped, undulating rims.


These impressive antique tureens retain the original hallmarked push fit covers ornamented with further chased fluted ornamentation, reflecting that to the body.

Each cover is further ornamented with the aforementioned bright cut engraved heraldic markings to one side.


The cover is surmounted with the original and impressive cast reed decorated tied branch handle enveloped with leaf designs to the terminals.


Each Georgian tureen is fitted with two cast sterling silver handles embellished with lobed designs to the centre of the handpieces, in addition to exceptional leaf decorated sockets.


These sterling silver tureens are each supported by four impressive cast paw style feet, accented with large leaf motifs in junction with the body.


* The Most Honourable Order of the Bath is a British order of chivalry, founded by George I in 1725 and abolished in 1815. This was originally a military order and the 'three' referenced could either be applied to the Holy Trinity or to the union of England, Scotland and Ireland.
