Écuelle

Écuelles are broad, shallow bowls with domed covers typical of 17th and 18th century manufacture (silver and ceramic) for the service of soup. It is not uncommon, such as with this work, for the lid and bowl to have become separated. Two handles or ‘ears’ negated the need for a spoon, as one would pick the vessel up by the ‘ears’ and bring to the lips to ingest the soup. Characteristic of French silver, the nearest English complement would be the deeper 17th century porringer. This écuelle follows the characteristic shape and form. It is refined and elegant with wonderful splayed foliate ears.
