This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver soup tureen has an oval rounded form.


Either side of the tureen is ornamented with two large oval cartouches bordered with bright cut engraved scrolling leaf designs accented with palmette style motifs and incorporating a matte background.

The flared rim of the body is encircled with a fine and impressive applied gadroon decorated border accented with four scrolling leaf designs alternating with four leaf motifs.


This large soup tureen retains the original impressive hallmarked push fit domed quatrefoil panelled cover surmounted by the original ring style handle accented with further gadroon style decoration with scrolling leaf design to the upper portion; the handle reflects the design of the aforementioned rim.

Condition


This sterling silver tureen is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

This tureen has some natural fire marks and small blemishes as to be expected; these do not detract from the exceptional aesthetic appearance of the piece.

The bright cut engraved decoration is very crisp and the embossed and chased ornamentation is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to surface of the cover and underside of the body, and part hallmarks to the handle are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Victorian silverware.
