Georgian Sterling Silver Sauce Ladle
Very much in the George III style and incorporating a silver coin of that king's reign in its silver bowl is this extraordinary sauce ladle, perhaps made to fit into a service of earlier manufacture. The handle is chased and engraved in a rococo chinoiserie manner, with fronds and flowers and an oriental parasol finial. The bowl is repoussd with panels of flowers and a shield. A snarling wolf is the armorial crest and the marks indicate the makers as William, Eley, William Fearn and William Chawner , London 1813 to 1814, sixty years after the date on the coin. Excellent condition, approximately 7-1/2 inches long with a bowl approximately 2-1/2 inches in diameter.
