The Sauceboats stand on an oval collet pedestal foot which is decorated with bold gadrooning. The elongated, baluster main body rises to a gadrooned rim and the high loop handle is decorated with reeding. The front of the main body, under the spout, is engraved with a shield shaped Armorial, with tied ribbons above. The Sauceboats are in excellent condition and are fully marked in the foot. The quality, weight and size of both pieces is outstanding, as would be expected from these silversmiths, who were patronised by King George III and his son the Prince of Wales, later George IV, when he was furnishing his Carlton House residence.

The Arms are those of Joseph Berens who was born in 1745, the son of Herman and Magdalen Berens. Herman was a merchant of both Amsterdam and London. In 1772, Joseph married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Edward Halse, Baronet, of Breamore House. It is most probable that these Sauceboats were purchased on the occassion of their marriage. Joseph lived first at Hextable House, then succeeded his father to Kevington Hall. He was a member of the council of the Hudson Bay Company and died in 1825, leaving a widow, four sons and two daughters. The family are all buried in Orpington churchyard and all of the tombs still survive. Hextable House was damaged in the war and subsequently demolished, however Kevington Hall, a mid Georgian red brick mansion, still survives.

Length, handle to spout: 8 inches, 20cm.
Width: 3.9 inches, 9.75cm.
Height to the top of the handle: 6.5 inches, 16.25cm
Weight: 37oz the pair.
