An exceptional, fine and impressive pair of antique Swedish silver sauce tureens; an addition to our 18th century silverware collection
These exceptional antique Swedish silver sauce tureens have a plain oval shaped form onto a plain oval spreading pedestal foot to a rectangular base and collet rim.
The plain body of each antique sauce tureen is embellished with an impressive applied figural medallion to each side.
The medallion to one depicts a female carrying an overflowing cornucopia and the other bears a seated female with a turtle to her feet; it can be determined that such an arrangement of figures relates to a historical event or folklore.
The upper rim of the tureen is encompassed with applied bead decoration.
These exceptional silver tureens retain the original push fit covers ornamented with further bead decoration and surmounted with an impressive cast silver organic acorn style finial.
Each antique Swedish tureen is fitted with two impressive silver handles ornamented with a band of applied oval bead decoration to the upper portion.
The oval pedestal foot of each tureen is embellished with applied bead decoration to the upper and lower portion.
The pedestal foot surmounts a rectangular base ornamented with an impressive floral border to the collet rim.
The hallmarks to the surface of each tureen includes:
Maker's mark: IWZ (Johan Wilhelm Zimmerman)
Silver quality/purity mark: Three Crowns National mark (Swedish, .830, 830/1000)
Date mark: I2 (1791)
These antique 18th century tureens are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.
The applied and cast decoration is very sharp.
The Swedish hallmarks to the surface of the body are clear in keeping with age and location.
Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these items of antique silverware.
