Soup Tureen, Two Quail
Oval tureen and cover, decorated after the Kakiemon in the Two Quail pattern; the crabstock handles and masks are interesting features. The tureen has had a rather unhappy life, apparently having been put down on a hot stove at least once.
Provenance: Stockspring Antiques; Taylor Collection.
Cracks throughout base extending to the sides; rivet repairs have been removed and the cracks stabilised. Displays well and is still an impressive piece.
