Object Literature

Brandy Saucepans made their first appearance in this country during the Queen Anne period and continued to be made until the mid-19th century. Some have spouts. The size varies but generally the early examples tend to be smaller. Sometimes they have three legs, these are called skillets, and they are quite rare.

Object Condition

The little silver saucepan is in very good condition. The turned wooden handle is nice and tight, looks original, and has an excellent antique colour; no cracks or joins but there are several small surface marks. Moderate signs of wear overall commensurate with age.
