Pair of antique silver Georgian sauce boats by William Skeen 1782.
Matching set of fine English silver sauce boats by this George III silversmith. Chased decoration to bodies depicting floral scenes with pronounced flower heads. The chased decoration surrounds a vacant cartouche. On either side of both sauce boats, scroll and flowers are abundant around the sauce boat bodies. The sauce boat rims are decorated with a fine engraved border detail. The handles are of swan neck profile with thumb rests and acanthus leaf terminals. Both sit on pedestal feet with perimeter engraving. The silver sauce boats are a match by design, size and assay marks.
These Georgian silver sauce boats are in lovely condition. Both are of good gauge, sit flat and level, the chased detailing is good and clear. Slight rubbing to detail has occurred over the past few hundred years but all reasonably good. Assay marks are rubbed but legible, please see images. Assay marks present are makers, date, passant and London office mark. The bowls are of good size, all without dents, tears and deep scratches, surface marks representative of age.
