Beautiful small-sized white ironstone tureen with its original lid. This lovely piece would be the perfect addition to any ironstone collection. It is stamped on the base "AH & Co v France" (Alfred Hache & Co. Vierzon, France) and dates to the latter part of the 19th century. This is a true antique classic with a lovely acanthus bud and foliage knob and handles. The simple classic design lends itself to many styles of decor and would make a lovely serving vessel, centerpiece display still life, or decorative accent just about anywhere in the house.
