A Soup Tureen

I bought this rather baroque goose soup tureen at an estate sale. While its style might not appeal to everyone I find it festive. I will use it as a decoration since I will never serve anyone that much vichyssoise. I imagine it was used at holiday time by the matriarch of a large clan. I do not think it would look out of place at a state dinner- It looks at home on my antique painted cabinet, surrounded by my paintings of Paris and France.
