In 120 years I just wonder how much soup has been in this ole girl!!! This tureen is the ‘Marseille’ blank and has a very interesting curved design which gives this piece a lot of character. It has very intricate handles wrapping around the sides that fade into raised relief design. The handle of the lid is shaped in a leaf form and has been accented with gold. Around the handle on the lid gold leaves have been painted. The leaves show a little ware from being handled. Around the bottom of the bowl’s sides there are leafy raised relief patterns, which add just the extra touch that makes this one stand out. There is also raised relief scroll work on the rim of the lid. The tureen has been factory decorated by Haviland with light blue flowers and swags that are outlined in a rusty red color. The design has been applied around the rim of the lid and the rim of the bowl. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc. This is one tureen that is beautiful, but you would not be afraid to actually use it on those family get together! Double Backstamp: MFG: H & CO over L and France Mark 11 Decorating: 'Haviland & Co. Limoges' in red Mark 13 The underside of the lid also has 'Haviland & Co. Limoges' in red.
Measures: 11” L x 8” W Bowl is just over 4.25 inches tall. About 7 inches tall with the lid, including the leaf handle.
