- Rococo Tureen ›
This example of a tureen and cover is formed from a curvaceous bulbous shape that rests on three scrolled blue feet. It has scrolled handles placed above female masks with the upper portion of the body revealing a raised band of scrolling that enters on a shield placed at either side. The slightly dome-shaped cover has wave borders like scallop shells; the top finial creates an elaborate miniature still life of coral, shells and algae.
