Circa 1920 German Meissen Blue Onion Soup Tureen with cover and underplate. This is a 20th century production of blue onion made in Germany. In the images you will see the mark of meissen printed out and this denotes a 20th century manufacture of this very poplular Blue Onion pattern. The mark of the crossed swords in blue onion by Meissen, dates back to Circa 1800. Blue Onion Soup Tureens with underplates and covers are very rare and hard to find especially in the earlier crossed sword marks. The underplate measures 15" X 10" and the tureen is 16" from handle to handle and the height of the tureen to the top of the finial on the cover is 10 1/2". The opening of the tureen is 11" X 8 3/4". Realitively in Good Condition with the exceptions of a few scratches. No Restoration. A real collector's item as Meissen Blue Onion Soup Tureen with cover and underplate is hard to find, even in 20th Century Manufacture. The opening on the cover is for a ladle. We have a non matching white ladle that we will include in the purchase of this tureen.
