Charles Leslie Silver sauceboat
A new arrival is this wonderful cast silver sauceboat by Charles Leslie, made in Dublin circa 1740.
Chales Leslie’s father, Thomas Leslie, was a silversmith from Edinburgh. It is not known when he moved to Ireland.
Charles worked of Castle Street, according to the street directory of 1752. He was a freeman in 1728, and worked until 1758.
His work is of superb quality, though in many cases he never submitted the pieces to the assay office. Often his pieces will only have a maker’s mark.
