Antique Faience Cabbage Form Soup Tureen Hand-Painted in Brussels Circa 1765$18,700.00
This faience soup tureen was made in the Philippe Mombaers factory in Brussels circa 1765; the cabbage tureen, its cover, and stand are painted in green tones with yellow highlights. The color combination is exquisite. The tureen is a gem of naturalism. Beautifully molded, the cabbage sits on a stand formed by cabbage leaves. The finial is in the form of a snail. Practiced gardeners know that snails are often found in the cabbage patch late in the growing season. A snail munching on this faience cabbage would have delighted the dinner guests when the soup tureen was presented at the table. Tureens in vegetable and animal forms were the height of a fashionable table setting in the Louis XV period.
Dimensions: 14″ diameter of base x 9″ tall Condition: Very Good. The snail’s antennae are restored. There are some very tiny losses to the glaze. There is a very fine, thin, professionally sealed hairline on the edge of the cover (See image #7). It can only be seen from the inside.
