A handsome antique sterling silver sauce tureen in the Adam style. Classic boat shape with bead borders, tall sweeping reed handles and a simple urn finial. To the front of the body there is a fine hand engraved armorial with the motto “Beware in Time” topped (on the lid) by a crest of a heron devouring a salmon, probably the arms of the Lumisden family, Innergelly, Scotland. Weight 548 grams, 17.6 troy ounces. Height to top of finial 14 cms. Spread across the handles 22.5 cms. Top 17 x 10 cms. London 1785. Maker Thomas Crippen.
This delightful silver tureen is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. Good gauge silver. The armorial and crest are still crisp. The base is stamped with a full set of matching English silver hallmarks, the lid has just the makers mark (badly struck – only the top of the “T” is visible).

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
