ANTIQUE SILVER SOUP TUREENS

Originating during the 17th Century in France, the soup tureen quickly became the most richly ornamented item used at the dining table, and since its creation some remarkable examples have been crafted in the UK and around the world. The name tureen comes from either the French word ‘terrine’, meaning a large, circular, earthenware dish, or was given in honour of the French military hero Marshall Turenne, who was said to eat his soup from his upturned helmet after battle. Either way, the soup tureen today is still considered to be the most important piece of silverware used for formal dining.
