The Sauceboats have three cast scroll legs and shell feet. The legs are attached to the main body with shell mouldings. Each has a gadrooned rim and leaf capped scroll handle. The handle is attached to the inside of the bowl with another shell moulding. The Sauceboats are of a good size and both are fully marked on the underside of the main body.



Thomas Heming was an important Royal maker and many pieces, from his workshops, still survive today in the Royal Collection. He was principal Goldsmith to King George III when these Sauceboats were made, with workshops in the fashionable New Bond Street. His master was the famous Huguenot Goldsmith, Peter Archambo, and you can see the influence of Fraench Classical designs in his work.
