Vintage Silverplate Strick Line Tureen

Vintage Silverplate Strick Line Tureen

$495.00

With a proud legacy of maritime service to one of the great British cargo lines spanning two centuries, this Vintage Silverplate Strick Line Soup Tureen is sure to have made many a storied voyage over the seas. Meticulously produced by one great English institution for another, this stately memento was commissioned by early shipping entrepreneur Frank Strick from the preeminent silversmiths at Mappin & Webb.

Starting a sole proprietorship as a shipbroker and coal exporter in 1887, Strick would go on to found, sell, build, buy and consolidate shipping lines and vessels throughout a 70-year career.  Tireless in expanding the sphere of his firm's shipping trade and sparing no expense in outfitting his fleet, a key decision in the late 19th century to service a new territory, the Persian Gulf, would prove to be a gamechanger. Rapid growth in this region and expansion to the Mediterranean before, during and after the World Wars period cemented Strick's position as a major player with ships reaching across the globe.

This handsome tureen with the Strick Line name and house flag expertly engraved on both the bowl and lid, boasts a bold, classic silhouette, at home in any setting. Beautifully formed handles and a gorgeous finial elevate this smart and practical servingware piece, ensuring pride of place for even your most special occasions. Perfect for summer ratatouille, a chilly night's potato leek soup, or divinely roasted vegetables on the Thanksgiving table, this rare tureen is a stately reminder of a bygone era when every meal (even on a merchant ship!) was presented in style.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good vintage condition with typical signs of age and use.  10.25" from handle to handle x 8" tall. Approximate capacity is 2.5 quarts (4 pints).
