This is a medum sized soup or gravy tureen, a figural piece shaped like a duck on a basket. The duck is the lid, the basket is the base. There is also a matching ladle. The ladle has a chip on the rim, as you can see in the photo. The base of the tureen is marked Japan with an incised mark under glaze. The tureen is 10 3/4" handle to handle, 9" wide rim to rim, and 9 1/2" tall.
