This is a really fine example of a large white ironstone antique French tureen or soupier. From the Digoin & Serreguemines factory and dates around 1920. Stamped on the base. In really good condition for its age. There is one small chip on the underside rim of the lid, which does not show from the side or top. I have clearly shown this in the photos. This is an antique item, made in a time when it was a useful kitchen, dining item and not a mere decoration. Please look carefully at the photos to see any defects which I have tried to show clearly. Measures 30cms high (11.75") including the lid 17cms (6.6") excluding the lid. 23.5cms (9.25") diameter excluding the handles.
