Red Transferware Castle Scene Porcelain Soup Tureen Set with Ladle and Underplate, Made in Japan. This beautiful and hard-to-find complete vintage Tureen, Ladle and Underplate Set in Red Transferware features a pattern that depicts a lovely scenic view of a castle by a river with boats in the water. The transfer printed design in the underplate is a floral border design. Ladle is solid white. All four pieces are in excellent condition except for a chip on the underside of the tureen’s lipped opening, on one side near handle (see photos). It is noticeable but doesn’t really detract from this old set’s beauty in my opinion…after all, it is vintage and has seen many years of use. There are no other chips, cracks, or crazing and no loss of Transferware pattern. (Please pardon any flash glare in photos.)
The bottom of the tureen and the underplate both have a tiny blue and white oval label that reads: “JAPAN” and there are no marks as to maker.
The tureen measures 10 inches long from handle to handle and is 6-1/2 inches wide. With lid, it measures 8 inches tall. The underplate measures 10-1/2 inches long by 7-1/2 inches wide. Ladle is 9-1/4 inches long; bowl is about 3 inches diameter and 1 inch deep.
This is a beautiful example of vintage red transferware!
