Antique 1800's Minton Floral pattern oval TUREEN with separate under-plate. Good to very good condition and clean. WHITE SPOTS AND STREAKS ARE REFLECTIONS AND GLARE FROM THE LIGHTING. The tureen measures 13 3/4 inches long by 8 1/8th inches wide and 7 1/2 inches high. The under-plate measures 15 inches long by 11 5/8ths inches wide and 1 1/4 inches high.
There are five etched or stamped maker's marks. Three pieces weigh 6 pounds 13 ounces. Natural crazing most apparent on interior and bottom. Overall exterior displays well with no view of main flaw.No cracks, chips or gouges. There are very few light surface scuffs in the glaze from storage. I find the following post production flaws. A through and through stain on the interior bottom (cannot be seen when seated on under-plate and covered with lid or filled with soup). Two flea bites on the under-plate's edge (too small to be photographed). I find the following minute production flaws. Two pencil tip size raised pits under the glaze (easier felt than seen). Two specks of errant paint under the glaze. I WILL INCLUDE A DAMAGE MATCHING PATTERN LADLE AT NO CHARGE.
A REPAIR WAS STARTED AND NOT COMPLETED BY THE PREVIOUS OWNER. I HAVE REDUCED THE TUREEN'S PRICE BY 50% DUE TO THE INTERIOR STAIN AND HAVING NO USABLE LADLE. This well-made and colorful tureen is clean, bright and ready for service and display. All items are insured and an on-line claim will immediately be filed. I have maintained a less than 0.030% breakage rate for over six years.
