How gorgeous is this! If you happen to be looking for a soup tureen, shop no more! You won't find better than this. Perfect for any holiday celebration!
Made by Villeroy & Boch, this set will immediately become the focal point of your table or when not in use of your sideboard or china cabinet! And...the great news is that this group is being offered here at well below its replacement value of over $500.00 for all four pieces (counting the lid as a piece so that includes the tureen, lid, underplate, and ladle).
The tureen is approx. 10 1/2" in diameter and the underplate is 12 1/2" in diameter. Of course the underplate can be used as a serving plate (called a large chop plate) when not in use with the tureen. The ladle measures 11 3/8" long.
Pieces in this pattern depict varying landscapes complete with castles and waterways with boats, mountains, etc. The consistent element between pieces is the wide floral rim. You should be able to tell that several of the photos were taken with the flash. Any large white spots are reflections - not damages.
This set is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. There is some light crazing on the underplate.
The backstamp helps to date this piece to post-World War II when Villeroy & Boch began a cooperative manufacturing effort in the French, Saar Basin region. Although it is impossible to pin down the exact date of manufacture, it is likely that it was from the mid-1950s up through the 1960s when they started to use a different green backstamp.
Shipping will require a large (double-boxed) container so shipping will be via parcel post to keep costs down. The flat rate quoted is approximate but we will absorb the difference if it is substantially higher and refund the difference if it is substantially lower (more than $5.00 in either direction).
