Vintage Christofle Silverplate Ocean Liner Covered Tureen - CCN Lisboa

Vintage Christofle Silverplate Ocean Liner Covered Tureen - CCN Lisboa

$495.00

Established in 1922 to serve the overseas colonies of Portugal, the Companhia Colonial de Navegação (Colonial Navigation Company, or CCN) was also known as The Portuguese Line and offered cargo and luxury transatlantic passenger service between Portugal and Africa as well as North, Central and South America.  Given Portugal's neutrality during World War II, theirs were some of the few ships able to safely offer transatlantic service. 

In the grand tradition of the great ocean liners, service aboard The Portuguese Line ships was elegant and sophisticated. Offering the very best in food, wine and amenities, the service aboard the ships showcased the culinary traditions of not only Portugal, but also classic French cuisine.

The Portuguese Line ships proudly sailed until February 1974 when they merged with another shipping company to form The Portuguese Company of Maritime Transport.  That company stopped operating in the mid-1980s.

Found at market outside of Paris, a magnificent Vintage Silverplate Covered Tureen produced by France's premier silversmiths, Christofle, for exclusive use aboard The Portuguese Line ocean liners.  Both the lid and the tureen are side-marked with the logo of the Companhia Colonial de Navegação: a ship's wheel with the company's house flag in its center, both bearing the initials C.C.N.  At the bottom of the ship's wheel is the name of company's home port, Lisboa. (Lisbon)


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good original condition with only a very small dent in the lid as seen in the alternate images. 15" x 12 3/8" x 8 1/2".
