English pewter sauceboats from the eighteenth century are rare with most surviving examples made by Henry Joseph of London. Elected a yeoman of the Pewterers' Company in 1736 and having risen to master in 1771, Joseph is noteworthy for the broad range of domestic goods that he produced for the American market.
