Brought to France in the late 1800's from England by a French family, this tureen has been used for generations for Sunday dinners.  Beautiful, and quite rare to find, this large serving piece is a treasure! The Floribel pattern was designed by the famous William A Adderley factory in Stoke on Trent, in 1876. If you are looking for unusual, exceptionally visually pleasing plates, these are them!

Beautifully decorated with floral motifs, butterflies and insects, it was transfer printed then hand colored, perfection!  As you can see from the photos, there is patina, the bottom has a hairline that has been there for decades, the lid has a tight hairline as well. To find a large serving tureen like this to match the plates is exciting enough to forgive a little age. Please only purchase this set if you adore antiques with the grace of time.  {You can cover the plate with hydrogen peroxide and enclose in a plastic bag for several days should you wish to bleach this out.} Set an exceptional table with these plates and the other pieces in this collection.

  • Measures 14-1/2" x 8-1/2" x 8-1/2"h.
