Catalogue Note

Although more than 120 pieces attributed to Brigden are known to survive, Patricia E. Kane in Colonial Massachusetts Silversmiths and Jewellers denotes only two pairs of Brigden sauceboats (p. 213).  One pair, bearing the Winthrop crest, circa 1760, is in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston (Buehler, Kathryn C., American Silver 1655-1825 in the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, no. 327).  The other pair, of the same date and engraved with the arms of Seward, were sold by Sotheby's Parke Bernet, 15-17 November 1973, lot 697.
