This is a very authentic piece of Alsatian culinary tradition, a medium size tureen that was made for cooking the famous "baeckoffe" which means "baker's oven" in Alsatian dialect.

It is a mix of sliced potatoes, sliced onions, cubed mutton, beef and pork which have been marinated overnight in Alsatian white wine and juniper berries and slow cooked in a sealed ceramic casserole dish. Leeks, thyme, parsley, garlic, carrots and marjoram are other commonly added ingredients for flavor and color. One of the possible origin of this dish is that women in France would do laundry on Mondays and thus not have time to cook. They would drop the pots off at the baker on Monday morning and do the laundry.

Still today you can find a lot of modern tureen in Soufflenheim but the one I am selling is from the XIXth century. It is a yellow "terre vernissée" glazed pottery.

The general condition of the tureen is good, I think that you can even try to cook with it.
