I've wanted one of these for almost a year now. I bought this one at a thrift store for $9.99 - worth it considering all the soup tureens I'd passed up before I finally found this one: no cracks or missing pieces!
First meal: creamy potato soup and cheesy biscuits. I can make my soup/stew/chili etc. in my 6 quart pot and it fits perfectly in the tureen - a good size for serving up to 8 people : )
