Gorgeous vintage 4-piece French Country blue and white floral soup tureen with under plate and ladle.

From Wikipedia and my thanks to them:

"Toile de Jouy" sometimes abbreviated to simply "toile" is a type of decorating pattern consisting of a white or off-white background on which is a repeated pattern depicting a fairly complex scene, generally of a pastoral theme such as a couple having a picnic by a lake or an arrangement of flowers.

A large ceramic tureen with a high dome lid topped off with an off white and royal blue swirled knob handle.  I love the scene on the lid which is a beautiful woven flower basket filled with a lush variety of flowers and leaves swirling around it.  Large octagonal floral under plate for the tureen with a ceramic off white ladle.  Beautiful matching royal blue unique handles on the tureen as shown in the photos. The scene is very detailed and lovely.  No makers mark on the tureen.

All measurements are approximate:
The bowl and lid together are approximately 10-1/2” high with a 9” diameter across the top of the bowl.  The tureen without the lid is 5-5/8”. The diameter of the bowl including the handles is 10-1/2”.  The diameter of the bottom of the lid is 8”.  The plate measures nearly 10 1/2 inches across. There is a raised portion under the under plate which is 7” across which allows the plate to be raised which makes it looks very elegant.  The ceramic ladle is 9” in length.  Excellent condition - I did not see any cracks, chipping, old stains or scratches.

It would look beautiful in a glass hutch with your other blue and white dishes, on an island with a decorative floral arrangement or in one's kitchen or on a table for a buffet when guests are over.

Care Instructions

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.

Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.

Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.

Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.

The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements. We hope you enjoy what you purchased but we know sometimes things do not fit quite as you would like or the color is wrong.  In that case, we do allow one exchange or a store credit on any item that you want. There are about 2,000 items in the store and more are being added all the time so you have a large selection to choose from.

You must email before returning an item so I can give you the information that you need to exchange the item.
