Description: These are fairly common to scarce soup tureens with their customary stands. They are octagonal in shape. The tureens are distinguished by their Boar’s head handles and feather knobs (sometimes called “helmet” knobs). The tops and stands have the rain cloud border, the bottoms do not. Each have the Canton scene, the bottoms have two. The insides are not decorated. The bottoms are glazed.

The large tureens are common, the medium size tureens are quite scarce if not rare. Stands are not always paired with their tureens when found. They make the tureens complete and if not present detract from their value.

The Boar’s head tureens are shown on page 221 of Herbert Schiffer’s 1975 book and in Jane Wilson’s 1977 booklet on page 8.
