For your consideration is this huge Majolica Cabbage ~ Lettuce Leaf Soup Tureen with Lid & Ladle. This set has lovely detail including the veins on the leaves and the scalloped leaf edge. This huge soup tureen measures 9-1/2" wide, 8" tall with lid in place and 26-1/2" around the body. I measured it and it holds 10 cups of liquid up to the rim, 9-1/2 cups leaving approximately 1" from the inside rim top. The colors are glorious, deep rich green to brilliant white. The leaves come together on the lid, and curl up to form a handle. There are two tiny chips to the glaze as seen in the photographs, I would personally touch up with some clear nail polish to protect from more damage. The base is signed, although it is difficult to read, I am able to make out 507, and then there is a maker's mark above that, see photograph. This will look great on your table for any season or holiday, sure to be a set passed down to future generations. Enjoy!
