Orvieto Tureen - 1.9 L - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter
Handcrafted by Italian pewter craftsmen, this beautiful vessel can hold 1.9 litre of homemade beef casserole or green Thai chicken curry, for instance, sized for a perfect portion for four, or for serving a side dish - vegetables or rice - to accompany the main meal when feeding larger groups.
This lovely pewter tureen has a timeless quality, evoking dinner service formality, yet at the same time the relaxed solidity of just doing things properly.
The tureen is a respected part of a modern dinner service, however, the golden age of the tureen can be said to have been during the reign of Louis XIV, when the dinner table, which used to contain every dish at once, was refashioned so that each course was presented with an air of ceremony. The soup tureen on its serving platter provided the opening ceremony, and the tureen was developed from a practical covered serving vessel into one of the most richly ornamented centrepieces of the formal apparatus of dining.
The Orvieto tureen is the perfect addition to the Orvieto range of kitchen and dining wares.
