Literature. The Antique Silver Sauceboat first made its appearance in the early 1700’s. The original form had two lips, one at each end, with two scroll handles and a spreading foot. This was quickly followed by the single lip form and by the 1740s nearly all examples had the traditional three feet. Usually oval, they were very occasionally octagonal or circular, and were originally intended for cold sauces.

Condition

Both jugs are in very good condition. With moderate signs of wear commensurate with age as expected.

Maker Information

Maker: Philip Garden

Philip Garden (other spellings Phil(l)ip(s), apprenticed to Gawen Nash 1730, free 1738. First mark entered as smallworker 1738, 2nd mark, as largeworker, 1739, 3rd 1744, 4th 1748, 5th 1751. Livery 1746. Grimwade describes Garden as an admirable exponent of the rococo style. There is an interesting hypothesis that Garden acquired the tools and models from Paul de Lamerie’s estate after his death in 1751. Some of Garden’s subsequent work bear identical features to Lamerie’s indicating some connection between the two master silversmiths.
