English Stering Silver Sauce Tureen Family Crest John Scofield 1789 For Sale
FINEST ENGLISH GEORGE III STERLING SILVER SAUCE TUREEN; STANDING GREYHOUND FAMILY CREST; EXCELLENT
We are pleased to offer this English sterling silver 1789 sauce tureen.
Bearing beautiful family crest of a stately standing greyhound.
From the very highly regarded shop of John Scofield. First listed 1776.
Grimwade writes (page 653) that his work shows "...high degree of elegant design executed with impeccable craftsmanship". It is generally agreed were it not for the restrained taste of the period, Scofield's work would have equalled that of Lamerie or Storr.
Classic raised urn form.
Well cast and fit domed cover. Both cover and base display matching three bead marks. Cover with elegant raised urn and globe finial.
Equally well cast sweeping panelled elephant's ear handles. Rising from feather leaf terminal. Hallmarked as shown. Cover and base both marked with three dots, showing the original matching set.
This 1789 tureen is 10 inches across the handles and 22 1/2 (standard) ounces.
Excellent condition. Rich, lustreous silver patina. Stands perfectly firm on table or display shelf. Cover well fit. The greyhound family crest retain much of their original detail.
