A 20th century pair of hand-forged sterling silver gravy ladles or sauce ladles in the Dog Nose pattern, featuring a rat tail on the back of the bowl and one of the earliest designs in English silver cutlery.

During the reign of Queen Anne (1707-1714), nearly all flatware was made in the Dog Nose, easily recognised by the distinctive shape at the top of the stem. The pattern is sometimes known as Shield Top and has strong resemblance to Trefid. It was made as early at the late 1690s until some time after 1715 but the pattern was revived in the late 19th century and is still made today.
