This tureen, with cover and under platter, was made for Princess Margaret on the occasion of her marriage in 1960. The inscription on the bottom of both pieces confirms this information. This item was sold at auction in 2006 at Christies in London. At that time it was described as, "Limoges Sevres-style turquoise ground tureen. The cover with gilt leafy artichoke finial printed and painted with vignettes of exotic birds with foliate scroll cartouches, gilded leaves and line rims." The selling price was $4852.00. This is an exceptional item in mint condition. The platter measures 22 5/8 inches. The tureen is 14 1/2 inches from handle to handle.
