Metalware - Pewter


Flat-Lidded Tankard 

English, 1680-1720

A good example of the early form -- straight-sides, flare- footed and flat-lidded. Lid and base marked with owners intials "IM' and with obscure wriggle work symbols. Rose and crown touch on handle. Fifty years ago my local pub had a beam thickly hung with the pewter mugs of the regulars -- each marked with owners's initials. Of course there was a "JF" hanging among them. Beer tastes great out of pewter.

Three Gothic Revival Spoons 

English, c. 1860

Decorative, and with some age. Possibly cast from a c. 1700 mold in the so-called Puritan style. Touch mark of dancing girl and 90 stamped on handle. Was $99.

Trefid Spoon 

English, c.1685

Very good example of the form, with crisp, ribbed rat tail on back of bowl, and owner's initials C D. Old, nicely pitted surface.

Trefid Spoon 

English, 1680-1710

Nice "reduced" trefid spoon -- the trefid finial reduced to an arch and two "horns." Dark "excavated" finish -- from river mud again? Worn Rose and Crown touch on reverse.

Large Wavy-Edge Charger 

English, c.1730-50

Wavy-edge plates are quite common, wavy-edge dishes turn up now and again, but this is the only wavy-edge charger we have seen -- and it's a desirable 20-inches to boot!. Surely you must have an empty 20-inches somewhere! Maker's touch (barely legible) on underside for James Spackman, London, (1704-1758). Heraldic armed fist holding a pen on rim.
