Beautiful heavy Antique Silver-plate Footed Tureen with Hand Engraved Armorial. The oval tureen stands on four impressive foliate feet with ornate detail. A family heirloom, from an estate, this is such a luxury piece to add to your sterling or silver plate collection.
On one side of the lid tureen a decorative crest or armorial of a bird holding an olive branch and PERSEVERANDO is hand engraved. The top has a scalloped rim and a removable handle featuring floral designs. It has the tiniest mark, I have not been able to decipher. Elegant, this has a wonderful glowing finish with patina.
