A Rare and Incredible c1810 Flight Barr & Barr Worcester Soup Tureen with the Original Under Tray or Platter Stand.
A Rare and Incredible c1810 Flight Barr & Barr Worcester Soup Tureen with the Original Under Tray or Platter Stand. The Tureen is done in the very desirable and well know Flight Barr & Barr Pattern, Purple Vine with a nice Rope Border and Gold Gilding throughout. The Tureen is a very large and I am sure quite Rare example of this Pattern being a full size Soup Tureen measuring 10" tall by 12" wide overall or 7-1/2" tall at the rim and 12" wide across the large Under Tray and will hold approx 12 cups. The Tureen displays beautifully and is in very good condition for such a large piece of this age with the Tureen showing some professional restoration to both handles and the finial on the lid, but no cracks and just overall light wear. The Under Tray is in excellent condition with one small chip to the underside but no other damage, cracks or repairs. The Tureen is unmarked as many of the large pieces in a service never were but this is a well known Flight Barr and Barr Period Worcester pattern.
