Georgian Sterling Silver Sauce Or Gravy Boat For Sale
GEORGIAN STERLING SILVER SAUCE OR GRAVY BOAT BY JOHN PARKER AND EDWARD WAKELIN, LONDON, 1774.
I am quite pleased to offer this large and heavy weight Georgian sterling silver sauce/gravy boat made by John Parker and Edward Wakelin at their London firm in 1774.
This fine piece of English silver is approximately 7.5 inches in length and 4.25 inches at its widest point. The sauce boat’s spout is approximately 4.00 inches tall, bowl is 2.75 inches tall and the handle stands approximately 6.5 inches in height. Again, the piece is made of heavy gauge sterling silver and weighs approximately 460 grams.
The piece is fully hallmarked as shown in the photo. Hallmarks are located on the bottom of the bowl and are: lion head for London, date letter for 1774, maker’s mark for John Parker and Edward Wakelin and lion passant for sterling.
Condition: The piece is in good condition with the normal light surface scratches and a very minor bump noticeable to the inside of the bowl where on foot is attached, but the piece stands level and the legs are not out of form. Condition is consistent with the age of the piece. There are no monograms or crest on the piece. No evidence of crest or monogram removals in the past. No evidence of repairs and there are no pin holes or splits. Again, the overall condition is very good. Please view and study the photos.
This piece of Georgian silver would be a unique addition to any collection.
Please feel free to contact me if you should have any questions or require additional photos. I make great effort to accurately describe each item listed. Returns are accepted, if either condition, country of origin or dating is significantly incorrect. Please study the photos which show the hallmarks as described.
Return Policy: Remember, the item is an antique. Hence, it will have an expected amount of wear from normal use. I described the condition honestly and as well as I can in detail. Again, if you have questions or would like more photos, ask before offerding. As such, returning an item because I failed to mention the tiniest bit of wear, or barely discernible flaw is not acceptable. Nor do I accept returns based on buyer's remorse. Nor change of taste, or because a buyer did not realize how “big” or "small" the stated dimension really is.
