I'm not sure when it was made, But I would estimate about 1910+-? The only mark on the bottom can be seen in photo 9. There isn't a decorators mark because the Grandmother who painted it didn't sign it. She ordered the china blanks for her entire set from France and then artfully hand painted every piece with the same elements used on the tureen.There were very few pieces of the set remaining because her Grandmother had used the set over the years. The tureen measures about 10 1/2 in diameter. It's about 7 tall (from bottom to the top of the final on the cover). I imagine the tureen didn't get used that much and that's why it's in such great condition. I found the piece in Eau Claire, Wisconsin many years ago. Note: Back at the turn of the century, hand painting your own set of quality china was quite common, but most of it that I've seen was poorly done - Grandma must have been very talented, because when I first saw this piece I immediately looked for the factory decorators mark. That was when her Daughter came over and we started talking about it and was given the information. YOU JUST DON'T FIND OLD SOUP TUREENS OF THIS QUALITY ANYMORE! Was Unit 78, now in unit20.
