A very fine pair of George III Sauceboats made in London in 1771 by Daniel Smith & Robert Sharp.


The Sauceboats stand on three scrolls legs with shell feet and shell mouldings where they are attached to the main body. The main body has a beautiful slightly baluster form with a shaped gadrooned rim. The scroll handle is decorated with leaf capping and also has a shell moulding where it meets the interior. The main body is engraved, on one side, with a contemporary Armorial Accole and on the reverse with a contemporary Crest, both are surrounded by a beautiful cartouche of tied drapery mantling. The Arms and Crest are those of Winn, accole with Winn for Sir George Winn, later Allanson-Winn, 1st Bt of Little Warley, co. Essex, created 1776, and subsequently created 1st Lord Headley and Baron Allanson and Winn of Aghadoe, co. Kerry in 1797. He was a barrister of Lincolns Inn 1755, and Baron of the Court of Exchequer, Scotland 1761-78. He had inherited the Little Warley estates from a distant cousin, Mark Winn, in 1763 and subsequently those of another cousin, William Allanson of Bramham Biggin, co. Yorks. George was a descendent of Sir Roland Winn, 1st Bt Nostell, created 1660. In 1765 George married his distant cousin Ann sixth daughter of Sir Roland Winn, 4th Bt of Nostell. His eldest son and heir, the 2nd Baron, succeeded to the baronetcy of Winn of Nostell in 1805 on the death, without issue, of the 6th Baronet. The Sauceboats are in excellent condition and are very well marked on the underside.
