18th Century Leeds Creamware Tureen Made Circa 1780


Leeds Pottery made this exquisite creamware soup tureen in Yorkshire, England, circa 1780. The simple rolled edge on the cover and the foot of the tureen is known as the silver edge. The shape of the tureen is taken from silver tureens of the period. It is perfectly proportioned and beautifully decorated with elegant intertwined rope handles. On the cover, we find a crisply molded rope twist finial, applied decoration in the form of acanthus leaves, wheat sheaves, and a single flower. The overall effect is beautiful!

Background of The Leeds Pottery

The Leeds Pottery was founded in 1770 in Hunslet near Leeds, England. At that time, the fashion in architecture and the decorative arts in England was neoclassical. The pottery owners took notice of the rising popularity of creamware and began producing classically inspired tableware made of creamware. The factory continued until the 1840s.
