References

This very unusual piece is very evocative of the Rococo style, and is a curious blend of sources: the cos-lettuce upper is a copy of the popular Worcester leaf sauceboat, dated to the 1755-57 period. The foot is very similar to London silver forms for the 1750-55 high rococo period. The creator of this piece clearly had access to both, and the result is this spectacular example.
