Condition

This handsome serving tureen is in good condition. The lid and body are fully matching. The engraved crests on both pieces are crisp. Both top and bottom fit well and have matching silver marks which are clear and easy to read. The liner fits well, it is made of old Sheffield plate which is quite normal with silver tureens, it was possibly made a little later and there is a makers stamp underneath. Although the condition is very good this item has been used over the last 250 years and there are some dents and the top handle is slightly pushed in. Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
