This is a wonderfully large antique Chinese tureen dating from the mid to late 1800's. It is porcelain with a Rose Medallion pattern: decorated in enamels with alternating figural and floral panels against a foliate ground. The underplate has a matching pattern. The cover has a gilded mushroom top and the double strap handles are gilded as well. There is also gilt around the edge of the plate, the cover and bordering the medallions.
The tureen measures 13" from handle to handle and 8 1/2" across. The plate is 12 1/2" by 10 1/4". Total height of tureen and plate is 9 1/2".
There is some wear to the gilt, especially on the handles and edges of the underplate. No cracks, chips or repairs.
