Eric Knowles Comments

Large Worcester Tureens tend to be problematic firstly because scholars are unable to state if they were made to receive soup or vegetables and secondly the issue of ill fitting covers.

The first will forever be open to debate whilst the consensus regarding covers appears to revolve around the largely accepted fact that those that fired well in the biscuit state were reserved for prestige onglaze enamelled / blue scale and other underglaze decoration. Those that did not exhibit the same perfection in biscuit were still retained and decorated with underglaze blue prints such as those seen on this tureen and cover whilst the firing line on the underside of the cover being undiscernible on the outside was considered to be aesthetically acceptable by those responsible for maintaining production standards.

This could and it may be argued should be used as intended. its a lot of soup of stew for me!
