Second Time Around Tureen

Welcome to "2nd Time Around Tuesday!"

I hope you will visit our hostess Diane at A Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words, and see her "2nd time around" kitchen pictures, plus everyone else's treasures for today.

I'd like to share this elegant little porcelain tureen I inherited from my mother-in-law. I love its size and the embossed fruit on the front, back, and lid. It also has a little porcelain spoon with embossed fruit on the handle.

I'm not sure how old it is, but it's marked "Japan," and has a lot of crazing on the bottom, so I suspect it is quite old. I love it, whatever its age, and hope to put it to good use on its "second (or third?) time around."

I love white tureens, and that one is certainly pretty, Janie. And how special that it belonged to a beloved family member. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.

XO,

Lovely tureen Janie, and if it says Japan it probably is very old and of very high quality. And to have something that has personal meaning adds to the treasure ! Thank you for sharing. Hoping that your 4th of July is filled with many blessings as you enjoy the celebration with your family and friends.

What a lovely tureen! I know you remember special times together each time you use it. I had a very pretty one, but it got demolished in the move. It was a wedding gift 35 years ago.
