An exceptional, fine and impressive vintage European silver soup tureen; an addition to our silver dining collection

The surface of this piece has a subtle planished finish and is encompassed with a band of embossed fluted decoration.

This vintage silver soup tureen retains the original hallmarked push fit swept cover, encompassed with further embossed decoration to the plateau.

The cover is surmounted with a cast reed decorated ring loop handle, accented with an applied rope twist decoration border to the lower portion.

The substantial domed foot is further embellished with embossed fluted decoration.

The hallmarks to this exceptional tureen include:

Maker's mark: Lale

By virtue of its size, this versatile silver dish could accommodate a multitude of champagne bottles and be used as a cooler or presentation cup and cover.

The piece has been tested as 880 standard silver and is struck with the 800 standard purity mark; a UK assay office will use a fineness hallmark of 925 (sterling) or 800.

This vintage silver tureen is an excellent gauge of silver, excellent quality and in excellent condition.
