Stunning antique Wm Guerin Limoges France large soup tureen features a figural dolphin riding a wave forming the finial on the lid. The under tray, base of the tureen and soup bowls are heavily decorated in molded gold frothy waves.
The rimmed soup bowls are 9 5/8" across.
The underglaze William Guerin Mark 2 in green dates the piece from 1891-1900 and the very rare overglaze decorating Mark 3 in red also dates to 1891.
There are twelve soup bowls, one has a small rim chip. There is a small loss on the back on the fish (shown), otherwise all else is in excellent condition.
