Condition report
Fully marked on the body, cover and handles.

The arms on the tureens are not listed in Papworth but the c!osest match is Drill/Driley/Dryle or D'eyville. In order to make the arms on the tureens into those listed the background needs to be changed, from argent (silver) to Or (gold) and the 3 flowers on the central area to the same charges as the three surrounding flowers. The flowers on the central area look like lilies and the fleur-de-lys is thought to represent the lily. This is,, however, not a strong attribution.
