"Beautiful soup, so rich and green,
Waiting in a hot tureen!"
~Mock Turtle in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Soup. Whether warm or cold, whether sweet and fruity or hearty and savory, whether a clear bouillon or a thick bisque, whether served as a first course or as a main dish, we have been eating soups for millennia.

As is the case with much of Western food culture, the French defined and refined how soup was to be prepared and served; and beginning in the late 17th century, soup was presented and served from its own specific piece of tableware called a tureen. What began as a simple, covered communal serving bowl, was elevated during the reign of Louis XIV into one of the most richly ornamented centerpieces of the dining table. In fact it was at this time period that the old custom of setting the dinner table with every dish at once, was replaced with the new practice of separate courses at meal time - each course entering from the kitchen with an air of ceremony. Soup remained the first course of most meals, from the king's table to the peasant's, and the impressive, decorative soup tureen provided the opening ceremony which set the tone for the entire meal.

Found at market in the north of England, we are proud to offer this lovely Antique Porcelain Soup Tureen. Coming to us from the noble Royal Worcester potters, we adore the classic oval silhouette of this lovely tureen. Beautifully decorated in Royal Worcester's lush Regency pattern of cobalt blue with intricate golden details, the tureen is further embellished with hand-painted metallic gold trim.

This gorgeous tureen dates from 1903 and includes its original ladle and a matching platter which serves as a beautiful liner.  Certain to take center stage on your table, this classic tureen is sure to make quite an introduction at your first course or proudly serve a hearty main course of soup.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good antique condition. Alternate images show speckles on inside of tureen. Tureen measures: 9.75"H x 14.5"L x 8.75"W. Platter measures: 15"L x 12"W. Ladle measures: 12"L.
