The Octagonal tureen and stand is one one the most popular and iconic piece in the Blue Canton pattern. It is substantial and can be used for serving or as decoration.
The most fashionable tables in the early American Republic were set with blue and white “Canton” or “Nanking” wares, named for the great Chinese trading ports from which they came. Chinese blue and white porcelain was in demand in this country well into the nineteenth century and has become a part of the heritage of many American families. Blue Canton faithfully recaptures this centuries-old tradition and taste.
