These exceptional antique Swedish silver sauce tureens have a plain oval shaped form onto a plain oval spreading pedestal foot to a rectangular base and collet rim.


The plain body of each antique sauce tureen is embellished with an impressive applied figural medallion to each side.

The oval pedestal foot of each tureen is embellished with applied bead decoration to the upper and lower portion.


The pedestal foot surmounts a rectangular base ornamented with an impressive floral border to the collet rim.

Maker's mark: IWZ (Johan Wilhelm Zimmerman)
