Pair of the highest quality crested silver plated early Victorian sauce tureens with liners and covers. Each features a different crest, so were perhaps a marriage item, joining two families. One crest is of a stag with the motto "FEAR GOD" and the other is of an arm with the hand grasping a branch or stick.
The domed and lobed covers feature a doe deer as the finial. Each tureen stands on four ornate bracket feet with two ornate applied handles and a lobed body. The ornate rims are decorated with scrolls and leaf decoration, along with four faces. An original liner sits inside each tureen.
Both are in excellent order and ready for use, with only minor surface wear. There is hardly any loss of silver plate.
The tureens and liners are stamped to the base for G. R. Collis & company of Church Street, Birmingham. All pieces feature the silver plate marks for G R Collis.
Approximate weight for the pair is 2.554 kilos (each weighs 1.277 kilos).
Approximate dimensions of one are 23.5 cm length, 17 cm width and 19 cm height.
