This is a magnificent lidded tureen in the blue & white Aesthetic Japonais pattern. The blue flows slightly into the white faience background and the lid has some luster color in it. Gorgeous pattern, crisp and colorful even though only two colors of course the added gold accents finishes it off ! One handle was damaged and restored with staples and other handle seems to have repair work also, please see pictures for condition. Seeing the staples in the old repair tells me this was a beloved piece, loved enough to pay the cost to have this restored. It needs a good home to be shown again in all it's beauty as it should be! IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
Backstamp: impressed HB CHOISY 2P blue stamp JAPONAIS
Measures: 12 ½” W handle to handle x 9 ¼” H w/lid 6 ¼” H wo/lid base: 6” W
