An exquisite set of 2 French antique tureens, one for vegetables and one for soup. They are fabulously elegant. They are in good antique condition. It is Porcelain de Paris which often came without a makers mark and was often made for individual households. With beautiful scroll handles trimmed with hand painted orange and gold. The monogram is MR or RM.
They are in good condition for their age, the inside is clean with just a few little marks in the porcelain. No nibbles or hairs but some little gentle signs of wear and some little manufacturing blips. The handle on the lid of the vegetable dish has a little chip on the underside, only just visible on the top and side. Some trace of age on the gold trim
