Literature. Antique Silver Tureens with side carrying handles were introduced during the reign of George II. The lid/cover helped to keep the contents warm. They are generally oval shaped, although they can be round or rectangular. Some have detachable liners and/or matching stands. Suitable for soup and stews, they often have a large matching ladle. Smaller sized tureens did not appear before 1760 and were used to serve sauces and gravy.

Condition

This delightful silver serving dish with cover is in very good condition. Good gauge silver. The armorial and crest are still crisp. Shows moderate signs of wear commensurate with age.

Maker Information

Maker: Andrew Fogelberg

Andrew Fogelberg, London silversmith, no record of apprenticeship or freedom. Thought to be of Swedish origin, possibly having arrived in London already trained as a goldsmith. He was first listed in 1773, his 1st mark presumed entered in the missing register of that date. 2nd mark (2 sizes) in partnership with Stephen Gilbert 1780. Grimwade describes Fogelberg’s work as “shows an elegant restrained classicism, particularly in his speciality of the use of small cameo-like medallions based on the Tassie paste gems popular in England at that time.
