Very pretty little Villeroy & Boch lidded tureen in white ceramic with a lovely rich blue decoration.
Amongst the lush foliage and trees are small French-style houses and a château.
The edge of the bowl is beautifully embossed with a textured repeating pattern which is echoed on the lid and a slot for a serving spoon.
Handles at either end make it easy to carry to the table and the perfect size for serving coq au vin for two!
In good vintage condition, there are two small chips on the base which can be seen in the photos and a little crazing in the ceramic surface. A classic vintage piece.
Height (with lid): 5½" (14cm)
Length (handle to handle): 10½" (24.5cm)
