Help. My mother has inherited a soup tureen with lid but no ladle. From the markings on the bottom which are H & C: then that is underlined and beneath the line it has an L. I believe if falls in the 1876-1881 dates. There are no further indications of patterns. The tureen is white with a gold band around it. There are no other colorings, markings or special edges. Is there a history of what patterns were available during those dates?
