Rare Vintage Arthur Court Clam Shell Sea Life Tureen

Details

Unique gift from the sea by Arthur Court Designs around 1979. This unusual tureen captures the sea with clams, sea horses, shells, seaweed and coral all designed on a clam shell in the most elegant setting. Topping the tureen is a brass cluster of sea shells! Such a contrast and genius in design. How magnificent! If you want something your neighbors can't get, this is it!

Arthur Court used his earlier experiences around the world observing nature to transform what he loved into wonderful, collectable pieces. Arthur and Elena Court made these early designs starting in the 1970's. He used the technique of sand casting and wonderful aluminum that does NOT have to be polished. The current Arthur Court folks indicated they have only seen this in his vintage design catalogue - very rare for anyone to let a piece go.

Wanting to impress your Bayou friends, throwing a Fais do do, love Gumbo, Jambalaya, Etoufee, Bisque Shellfish Soup (crawfish, shrimp and oysters optional), Courtbouillon, this piece is for you! Laissez les bon temps rouler! This piece weighs 6 1/2 lbs , bowl alone is 3 3/4" high; bowl with lid is 7 1/2" high; diameter between 10-10 1/2" wide.

I understand from the Arthur Court website the proper way to preserve this fantastic eye catching piece is to: Always wash with mild soap and water; towel dry completely. Never: let it sit in water, leave foods for storage, place in microwave or dishwasher, cut in or use extremely sharp objects to pry or cut. Can be: heated up to 350 degrees; placed in refrigerator or freezer to chill. (that beats tupperware!)
