This is another item that I might have paid a tad too much for, but in my defense, it is Royal Doulton and it is the most special piece of art deco design – plus it has its original ceramic ladle, which is pretty darn cool (and impressive after all these years!). I love the orange and black colour scheme, but really it was that half-circle handle that did it for me! Isn’t it just the most striking piece of design? For the most part the set is in excellent condition, but there is some minor crazing. What’s important to point out though is the size of this tureen – it’s probably half as big as you’d expect it to be, and could probably only serve two people for dinner, or act as a side dish for a larger party.
An incredible piece of art deco design in excellent nick.
Dimensions: Tureen – 10cm tall (with lid on) x 14.5cm in diameter; Serving plate – 19.5cm in diameter; ladle – 15cm long x 7.5cm in diameter
Price: R290 for the set
