Vernon Kilns Colossal Tea Cup Soup Tureen Homespun

This item was also shown in a Vernon company brochure as an ice bucket. In November 1953, p.143 of Family Circle an article gives a recipe for Turkey Soup Supper in a Vernon Kilns Colossal Cup. The article bills the Colossal Cup as a "Teacup Tureen". In pristine condition, the cup measures 9.5" in diameter, saucer 15" diameter, both as pictured about 8" high.
