Object description :

"Pair Of Sauce Boats, King Farouk I Of Egypt, Veyrat, Paris 1870, Sterling Silver"
Sumptuous pair of two solid silver gravy boats from the Napoleon III period engraved with the monogram of King Farouk I of Egypt (1920-1965).
They are screwed onto their original frames and decorated with floral motifs and a typical guilloche engraving for the production of Parisian goldsmiths intended for wealthy clients of the Ottoman Empire during the Napoleon III period.
Probably commissioned by one of King Farouk's predecessors around 1870, their royal monogram was adapted at the start of the reign of the new monarch in 1936.
King Farouk succeeded his father at the age of sixteen, inheriting not only the crown but also a vast fortune of over a hundred million dollars, countless palaces and more or less a seventh of the fertile land of his country.
The young king, an almost Hollywood figure, will experience a stormy journey having to deal with Nazi Germany, the English colonial Empire and the new state of Israel.
Badly surrounded, badly advised and bad strategist he will chain bad decisions and end his life in exile in Europe, chased by Nasser.
After his abdication, the new powers of his country organized large auctions of thousands of the king's treasures and collections. It was probably at this time that our gravy boats entered the international antique trade.
