Victorian Sterling Silver Soup Tureen.
Offered by William Walter Antiques Ltd
Tureens were introduced via the French court in the early 18th century as a functional table piece from which a host could serve soup or stew and the word “tureen” is derived from the French word “terrine”. Louis XIV’s taste for hot, rich stews is often credited as a major influence in the use of tureens. As tureens became a symbol of wealth, many were engraved with marital or family armorials. In the mid 1700’s, tureens were provided with matching stands and ladles, and by the late 1700’s sauce boats were replaced with smaller sauce tureens, often matching the larger tureens.
