Not for Sale–Not In The Collection
Description: This is a magnificent soup tureen with stand and it is pictured only in Herbert Schiffer’s 1975 book on page 222. The book’s pictures show a sculptured, bulbous sided tureen with very unusual shell handles not seen on any other Canton form. The top with its loop knob has a wavy rim that fits into an inset wavy rim on the tureen. Also, very unusual is that the top has a ladle hole for a ladle to sit in. The top’s rain cloud border goes up and around the ladle hole. The tureen’s stand is also most unusual as its scalloped shape resembles the tureen’s shape.
We have never seen an example and we hope, if one of our visitors has one, that they will let us know so we may add pictures for everyone to see and additional information!!
