Stock Description

Written for collectors and the general public alike, this full-color catalogue highlights 121 important tureens and related items from the outstanding collection given to Winterthur by the Campbell Museum in 1996. Comprising both metal and ceramic tureens, as well as ladles, soup plates, bowls, and spoons, the collection illustrates the broader history of dining practices, particularly in the 18th and 19th centuries, when many items were commissioned by royal and aristocratic patrons for use in elaborate dining ceremonies.
New research by the authors adds considerably to the body of knowledge about makers, fabrication, and provenance -- subjects addressed in each entry. An appendix describes the XRF analysis carried out on metalwork items in the collection and interprets data derived from the analysis. A glossary and extensive bibliography provide further explanation and resources.
