Antique French Early 20th Century Large White Ironstone Lidded Tureen by Sarreguemines
A wonderful large French antique white ironstone soupiere, soup tureen or casserole dish, dating from the early part of the twentieth Century.
Made by Sarreguemines, and bearing the maker’s mark on its base, this beautiful white ironstone lidded serving dish was sourced in France and would make a wonderful addition to a white ironstone collection.
The soupière has wonderful scuplted handles, which help to give the tureen a stunning and stand out look to it. It is large enough to be used to serve food for a number of people too.
It has aged over time, with light crazing all over, which has stained and given coffee coloured hues to the base in particular. No doubt this is the result of use over the years. This contrasts against the lid of the tureen, which is cleaner in appearance. There is a small hairline crack to the top rim but this is tight and stable and adds to the aged look of the piece.
These tureens are excellent to use for display around the home and are perfect for adding a French country or rustic farmhouse touch to any interior.
