It is very difficult to buy things on the internet with just a show of pictures. Unfortunately, that is the way things work. Therefore, please ask all questions BEFORE you click the "Buy" button. If you need more pictures, please leave your email indicating so.
Since I always expect the people I buy from to be honest with me in my purchase, naturally, here, I will try to be as honest as I can in the items I am selling so that you will have the confidence to own this beautiful piece of the Harold Holdcroft legacy. If I have erred or overlook certain details, please inform me immediately so that I may rectify it.
I live in Singapore, Overseas buyer, please note that this set will be posted from SINGAPORE.

This auction is for 1 piece of this beautiful, Large Soup Tureen. I will throw in a FREE steel Ladle with white porcelain embossed flower design on the handle. My way of thanking you for your kind purchase of this special item. :)
Both the Large Soup Tureen and the Ladle are Factory Firsts Quality. Both BRAND NEW. And both in their ORIGINAL BOXES. As such, they do not show any scratches or markings through the backstamp, or on any surface part. Please note that this is a sturdy Tureen. So, it is heavy. I will double box it when shipping overseas so that it will be able to withstand the most unmerciful of treatments. This Tureen has a very nice size to put soup, rice, noodles or anything that you can think of! It is a very versatile Tureen because of its unique shape. The beautiful handles on the sides make it very easy to transport from the kitchen directly to the dinner table. The food will keep piping hot or cold inside, depending on your dish of choice, because it has a very thick wall that would insulate against the different temperatures better. The large enough knob that sits on top of the lid also makes it easier to take the lid on and off. This is an absolute must-have-item on your dinner table this holiday season.
This spanking new Large Soup Tureen comes from the newer range of Royal Albert line. A unique masterpiece. This is the newer China-made version.
Please take note that it is HEAVY, empty. So when you put food in it, please expect it to be heavier than it already is.

This NEW Old Country Roses Large Soup Tureen and Free Ladle comes with its original retail sticker. Since this is new, there is no chip, crack or crazing to be found anywhere. It has a beautiful Montrose design. There are the signature English Tea Roses surrounding its 'belly' and lid. The 22k Gold banding adds an elegant finish around the finial, handles and foot. It can hold 28 quarts capacity. Beautiful porcelain, fluted body and lid. It has a tiny 'opening' at the lid for the ladle to go through. There is still full gilding on each rim, lid, finial top and base.
The backstamp on the ladle reads:
ROYAL ALBERT ®. Stainless 18/8.
This Large Covered Soup Tureen and Stainless Steel with Porcelain Handled Ladle are both produced for the Royal Albert company in CHINA. Please do not be confused when you see the 1962 stamp on all of my china pieces. This just means that in 1962, the copyright for the Old Country Roses pattern name was made official for the Royal Albert company. This set of Large Covered Soup Tureen and Stainless Steel Ladle with an Embossed Handle are new and authentic Royal Albert pieces as depicted by the backstamp on them. Royal Albert shut down the bulk of its England's production and moved them to its Asian factories as early as 1998 because production was getting too expensive to produce. The Royal Albert Company also did not practice dating all the pieces produced. Therefore, it is difficult to put a date on the pieces that I own. However, this Tureen is from its newer line of formal Dinnerware. Therefore, it is safe to assume that it was probably produced around the year 2000.
This Large Soup Tureen approximately measures
* 1 pc Large Soup Tureen - 23 cm tall x 29 cm in diameter;
* 1 pc Large Tureen Lid - 11 cm tall x 22 cm diameter;
* 1 pc Stainless Steel & Porcelain Handle Ladle - 25cm long.
