This medium size Tureen is perfect to serve strawberries from for dessert!
The body is bright white with lavish gold trim. Yet, it is the superb applied decoration of strawberries leaves. and flowers that make it beautiful. The platter measures 13 1/2" x 11". The Tureen is 7" tall including the lid. The Tureen measures 10 1/4" ( handle end to handle end). The oval opening is 7 1/2" x 5". Lovely twisted twig handles are on the lid top, each side of the dish, and the platter. The set comes with a 7 1/4" white ceramic ladle with gold trim. The Tureen and Platter are marked "Made in Italy".
The only flaws are two chipped flowers under the strawberries on the lid. The Tureen body, lid, and platter have no chips, cracks, or crazing. This is a beautiful display item.
I have listed separately a matching vase. See item 1738#7752 in my shop "Linda's Enticements Antiques". It is marked Mottahedeh, Italy.
