These fine antique George III sterling silver sauceboats have an oval rounded form in the Regency style.

The body of each sauceboat is embellished with fine and impressive chased floral and foliate decoration accented with a scrolling leaf bordered scale motif diaper pattern.

The decoration to each body incorporates a shaped scroll bordered vacant cartouche to either side.

The feature ornamentation to the underside of the lip of each fine sauceboat depicts a scene of five grouse style birds nestled together on a grassy terrain with a hillside landscape to the background.

Each large sauceboat is ornamented with an impressive applied gadroon decorated border with incurved scrolling terminals to either side of the upper portion of the handle.

The sauceboats are fitted with opposing scroll handles featuring impressive leaf decorated thumbpieces.

Each of these fine examples of Georgian silverware is supported by a plain oval pedestal foot encircled with an impressive gadroon decorated border to the rim.

These impressive sauceboats are struck with an additional date letter for 1840 to denote the completion of the exceptional chased decoration to the body.
