This Royal Doulton soup tureen is in superb condition with no chips or cracks or flea bites. The white streaks are light reflections. I am including a ladle, that goes with the tureen in that it is the same color, but didn't come with it. The tureen is fully marked on the bottom. The tureen measures 8" high and 12" wide at the widest point. The base is 4 1/4". Plenty of room for corn chowder!!
