THE GOLDEN JUBILEE OF KING GEORGE III. An extremely rare George III Vinaigrette made in Birmingham in 1809 by Samuel Pemberton.


The Vinaigrette is broad rectangular in form and the cover is finely engraved with a Neo Classical pedestal urn with the Crown of the Sovereign, George III, on top. The pedestal is flanked by a thistle for Scotland, on the left, and a rose sprig for England on the right. The base is engraved with a central foliate sprig, surrounded by prick dot borders. The cover opens up to reveal exceptional gilding and a grille pierced and engraved with a central corucopia, leaves and flower heads. The interior is very well marked.

These Vinaigrettes are extremely rare and were made in 1809 for the Golden Jubilee of King George III in 1810. The Royal family was not in great favour at this date and it was hoped that the Jubilee celebrations would bolster the popularity of the King and his family. An extremely rare Vinaigrette.
