This is a vintage Meiselman Imports Made in Italy hand painted birds and flowers pattern soup tureen. The tureen is 9" tall without the lid, 13 1/2" tall with the lid. It is hand painted with birds and flowers in yellow, burgundy, blue, and green on a cream background. There is a white spot on the lid finial that looks like a chip, but it is under glaze and may be a painting flaw more than anything else. JG.
