Pair of Irish Sterling Silver Sauceboats Vintage 1967. These fine vintage Elizabeth II sterling silver sauceboats have a plain oval rounded form in the George III style. The body of each piece is embellished to one side with a bright cut engraved crest of a unicorn rising out of a coronet. Each sauceboat is ornamented with a scalloped border to the rim.These vintage silver sauce boats are each fitted with a C scroll handle featuring a chased leaf decorated thumbpiece and bifurcating scrolling lower terminal. Each of these fine examples of Irish silverware is supported by three impressive applied hoof feet with stylised shell decorated sockets. In addition to the expected full Irish hallmarks, each sauceboat is struck with full import hallmarks. Importer's mark: SAO (Sheffield Assay Office). These vintage sauceboats are a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.
The bright cut engraved decoration to each piece is very crisp. Full hallmarks struck to the underside of each piece are all very clear. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these pieces of vintage silverware.
