C. 1800 CHINESE EXPORT NANKING TUREEN
Circa 1800 Chinese Export Nanking Soup Tureen. This size might also be considered a sauce tureen because of the size. It is 6" in height to the top of the cover's finial. The dimension from handle to handle is 8" and the dimension from front to back is 4 1/2". The features which make this so nice are the double strapped handles and the mushroom finial. Nanking was made for the English Market and Blue Canton was made for the American Market. The main difference in the two is that Nanking always had a person on the bridge and Blue Canton had no one on the bridge.
