A fine and rare example of a French, 18th century, soupière en faïence (two-handle, faïence soup tureen with lid) from Marseille with a rich, finely painted polychrome decoration of flowers and insects on a rocaille form. Red fish and shellfish surmount a domed cover. Two handles with shells and four scroll feet support the bowl.
