Metalware - Pewter


Master Salt 

English, c.1725

Nicely balanced turnings on this table salt that would have been shared among a number of diners. It's just a well proportioned, functional piece of Georgian tableware -- no fanfare, but no apologies. Interior pitted by the salt.

Pair of Salts 

English, mid-18th c.

Nicely turned bowls and feet with beading. Interiors pitted by the salt.

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.


Details and more photos. 



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.


Details and more photos. 



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.
