A Pair of George III Sauce Tureens

AN EXTREMELY FINE PAIR OF GEORGE III SAUCE TUREENS AND COVERS MADE IN LONDON IN 1793 BY WAKELIN & GARRARD.

The Sauce Tureens are "Boat" shaped in form and stand on an oval pedestal foot decorated with reeding. The lower section of the main body is decorated with flat fluting and the rim with gadrooning. Each piece has two loop side handles, attached to the main body with sections decorated with acanthus spears. The domed covers are also decorated with flat fluting and terminate in a bud finial with leaf capping. The front of the main body is engraved with a contemporary Armorial, with the Motto " Scio Cui Credidi " on a banner below and the cover is engraved with a contemporary Crest.
The Arms are those of James Milnes ( 1755-1805) of Thornes House, Wakefield, County Yorks. The Tureens passed to his first cousins son Benjamin Gaskell and then to his son James Milnes Gaskell, 1810-1873), M.P. for Wenlock, Shropshire 1832-68 and Lord of the Treasury 1841-46. The Tureens are fully marked on the foot and the covers. They are in excellent condition and are of the finest quality, as would be expected from these makers who enjoyed Royal patronage.
