The rectangular two-handled tureen has rounded corners and stands on a similarly shaped foot. The domed lid has a opening at one end for a soup ladle.  The molded C shaped handles have scrolled leaevs where they join the tureen rim.  A similarly molded finial surmounts the lid.  The lid and body are printed with a blue transfer picture entitled "American Villa" on other examples.  No title is printed on this tureen.  The image is imaginary, showing a substantial three-story building against a mountain-like background.  A figure in a horse-drawn carriage trots across the foreground.  A guilloche band encircles the tureen at the outside of the rim.
