This is a beautiful gilded soup tureen with lid from Tessemann & Vogt (T & V) of Limoges France. This hefty size tureen is in the Marguerite Design which features wonderful branches of pink apple blossoms mixed with green and bluish leaves on a creamy white porcelain background. The handles are accented with gold and a gold flower is painted on the lid as if it were growing from the handles. The large tureen is roughly and there is a carved out portion of the lid for a spoon. Condition is lovely; there are no chips, dings, cracks or fractures. There is a dark spot UNDER the glaze under the handle on one end of the tureen. This is a lovely piece and would be a welcome addition to any Limoges collection.
Backstamp: "Marguerite Pat July 11, 1884 T & V"
Measures: 13” L x 8 ¾” W x 6 ¾” H base is ½”
