Vintage Bull / Cow Soup Tureen with Ladle Japan
- Source: eBay
Absolutely beautiful Bull soup tureen with ladle. He is 14 1/2 inches long by 5 1/2 inches wide by 6 1/2 inches high. The ladle is 9 1/2 inches long and 2 1/4 inches wide. The bull is in a resting position and is white with flowers and leaves encircling his neck and on the lid of the tureen. The ladle also is white with a sunflower on the end. This is an estate find so I do not know much about it. The bottom has a sticker that says made in Japan and a painted "N" under a sunburst No chips, cracks or crazing, but t is a small wear spot in the glaze under the right nostril. (shown in picture) Really unique piece. Whimsical yet elegant.
