The Antique Silver Sauceboat was made its first appearance in the early 1700’s. The original form had two lips, one at each end, with two scroll handles and a spreading foot. This was quickly followed by the single lip form and by the 1740s nearly all examples had the traditional three feet. Usually oval, they were very occasionally octagonal or circular, and were originally intended for cold sauces.
