Portuguese Solid Silver Tureen Covered Dish Marked Oporto Figural Pear Finial
Portuguese Solid Silver Tureen Covered Dish Marked Oporto Figural Pear Finial 48oz. Presented is a beautiful solid silver raised covered bowl or tureen with marks for silver made in Oporto Portugal 833 fine silver; American standard sterling silver is 925, so there is slightly less silver in this alloy. I have placed a picture in the photos above of my research on these marks. This tureen is a finely crafted useful piece with scrolling leaf handles matching the elegant engraved design around the lid and bowl with a great figural pear handle on the top of the lid. It has only a slight dent or bend in the lid edge with some fine scratches from gentle use and care and no monogram.
It is an excellent piece of artistry and a highly collectable item for the silver collector as well as a great addition to almost any table or service for the most elegant of settings. I have an interesting assortment of items listed so please look at my other auctions. Measure : 9 inches high, 8 3/8 inches wide, 10 inches wide across handles. Weight : 48 ounces on my postal scale or 1361 grams.
