A very rare George II 'Dolphin' Sauceboat made in London in 1742 by David Hennell I


The Sauceboat has a large deep body which rises to a shaped rim and pouring spout. This rare piece stands on three paw feet and displays exceptionally finely detailed lion mask mouldings where the legs are attached to the main body. Most interestingly, the flying scroll handles are modelled as beautifully detailed dolphins or sea monsters, a design which is usually seen on sauceboats from Newcastle. The sides of the main body are beautifully chased with Rococo designs including Rococo shells, scrolls, fruit and foliate designs. The side is also engraved with an unusual contemporary Crest. The sauceboat is in excellent condition and is very well marked on the base.
