"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.

From the silver markets of England, we are proud to offer this lovely Vintage Silverplate Soup Tureen and Ladle. With a clean, classic silhouette and petite nature, the tureen was made in Sheffield, England and carefully engraved with the name Wilerbys on the body of the tureen, as well as the lid and ladle. Shining and gorgeous and in pristine restored condition, we are certain this tureen will make a lovely addition to your tableware collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In excellent restored and replated condition. 6" x 8 3/4" wide. Ladle measures 6 7/8".

 

Learn More About Tureens

As is the case with much of Western food culture, the French defined and refined how soup was to be prepared and served; and thus 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. 

It was at this time period that the old custom of dressing 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.
