Alternate Text

Exceptional tureen with its multi-lobed, silver platter. The circular tureen is set on four feet and is decorated with a floral wreath in relief. The lid and the platter are embellished with four intricately sculpted, Rocaille-style cartels featuring putti reveling in the grape harvest. A putto sits atop the lid to serve as a handle. The oille tureen is both a recipient—destined to hold sauced meats and stews—as well as a decorative statement that was important to meal service done in proper French style. It made its appearance at the end of the 17th century to the early 18th century.
