Antique Bisto England Large Soup Tureen
A fabulous antique English soup tureen made in London at the turn of the 19th Century!
With a classic Regency shape and style but with a touch of Roman interpretation, this large tureen must be displayed for all to see but also enjoyed at your next dinner party.
Features a royal inspired design of gold laurel wreaths, navy blue and gold trims.
Given its size and shape, this tureen would look beautiful on a buffet table, as shown in my photos.
14"L x 8.25"H x 9"W
Made in London by J Shoolbred & Co. between 1820 and 1931
In good antique condition with superficial crazing in the glaze and some brown spots inside
James Shoolbred and Co. (aka Jas Shoolbred) were established during the Regency period of the 1820’s. Noted for a sophisticated aesthetic look, their pieces often referenced Regency interpretations of Greek and Roman antiquity. They quickly gained a reputation for high quality products and by the 1880’s, Shoolbred had opened the London's’s first large department store on Tottenham Court Road, London.
In the mid 1880’s Schoolbred was granted a Royal Warrant, testament to the quality of their products but eventually ceased trading in 1931 following the financial depression of the 1920’s.
All orders ship within 3-5 business days after the order and payment is received but slight delays may occur during high season and holidays.
All orders ship out of our San Diego, CA warehouse and those in the IS will arrive within 2-9 days, depending on the shipping method selected.
We use USPS and UPS as our preferred shipping carriers as we're able to use discounted commercial shipping rates. At the time of shipping, we will select the most cost efficient and expeditious option for your order (USPS Priority/UPS Ground or 3 Day Select) - the less a package is in transit, the better chances of a safe arrival are.
Our website is integrated with USPS and UPS which means that shipping costs are automatically calculated during checkout based on your shipping address and size and weight of the box. That said, calculations are not always precise, particularly for multi product orders. If final shipping costs end up being less than what you paid, we will refund you the difference and if it ends up being more, we will bear that cost.
We do not charge any mark ups, handling fees or shipping insurance costs to our customers. We provide complimentary shipping insurance on all orders to protect you against damage that may occur during transit. We have safely shipped hundreds of fragile orders and we expertly package the porcelain and glass orders so you can rest assured that your order will arrive to you safely.
Due to significant new tax and customs implications as a result of Brexit, we are suspending all of our deliveries to the UK effective January 1, 2021. We apologize to our UK customers but as a small business we are unable to take on the large amount of requirements.
