Tureens are often used in France as serving dishes for foods such as soups, cassoulet (stews), gratins or classic ratatouille.
Its shape is characterized as a deep oval vessel with fixed ear handles on either side and a cover with a knob to lift open. This petit tureen would be a delightful piece to add to a collection of antique French pottery.
