Seven Swans a Swimmin' Soup Tureen



I am serving soup for lunch today in my Swan soup tureen.   I've been humming "seven swans a swimmin" all morning...can't get it out of my head!
I am serving soup because I wanted to use my new "handled" soup bowls that we bought at the auction last Saturday.

From what I found out when I Googled them, they were used to serve creamy soups.

There were a few odds and ends pieces in the set...

For $19 I got...

5 handled soup bowls and under plates....

4 small bowls....

and 2 saucers.

I couldn't find the pattern name but they are Noritake M Japan.

I bought this beautiful soup tureen at an estate sale a while back...

......as memory serves me....less than $20.

The weather has been so mild that we still have roses growing in the garden.   I cut these pretty yellow ones and 6 pretty pink buds this morning.



Along with my soup, I am going to serve a tossed salad and some crusty bread.....join us for lunch?

  15. I knew that china had to be Noritake before I read it! I can tell you by the backstamp it is circa 1933. I will try to find the pattern for you. The swan tureen is gorgeous.
    Have a wonderful week.
