An absolutely Beautiful Antique French Silver Empire Style Sauce Boat by ‘Maitre Orfèvre’ Charles Antoine Amand Lenglet.
The Beautiful piece has its matching removable oval under tray slightly dipped in the middle, and accented by the same spokes of hearts motifs that grace the sides of the main dish.
The tray rests on four beautifully carved lions’ paws.
The Dish itself rests on a raised oval pedestal also lined by a spokes of hearts wreath.
The Delightful Handle is represented by a solid Silver Swans’ Neck rising up from a column of acanthus leaves.
It is exquisitely representative of the Empire Style in its most elegant expression!
The piece is perfect in its balance and style.
It sits beautifully on a table, perfect to serve your favorite sauces!
