The image shows an ornate oval-shaped tureen with a lid, believed to be from the 18th century, made of painted porcelain. The body and lid have a white base color and are adorned with intricate, colorful floral motifs and various insects like butterflies and grasshoppers. Two exceptional dark-colored, textured handles on the sides resemble animal heads, possibly boars or bears, with open mouths revealing a white interior and sharp fangs. Atop the lid is a grip fashioned in the likeness of a partially opened artichoke with purple-tinted leaves against a green base, creating a realistic appearance.
