An impressive good size 19th century tureen with plate. Depicting dolphins in the shanghae pattern. The colours are beautifully vibrant and set off with a gilt edge, and the handle is in the shape of two dolphins.
This would grace any dining table and on any occasion. (Does not include ladle).
In good condition, it does have some crazing and staining to the glaze on the tureen, but no chips or cracks (see photos).
