# 5121. A Victorian Silver Plate Covered Soup Tureen. Circa 1885. From the firm of Wilcox: form # 2110-A4. Size: (foot to foot: 7.5" x 11" and 11" tall with the width handle to handle 14". Condition: The lid handle is a reclining deer and the left antler is broken off and missing; the lid sits a little up on one corner where there is a hole for the soup ladle. The style would be Renaissance Revival: winged dragons support each corner; the handles are lady caryatids and the lid handle is a sitting buck or deer. Renaissance style chasing contrasts against the mat body surface. Polished plates on either side were meant for monograms which were never applied. The silver surface appears to be original. The hall mark states quadruple plate. The interior is bright and usable. A rare form from the grandest era of American Silver Plate. Price $950.00.
