1700s Pewter Plate

Previous ◁ | ▷ Next

Pewter has been used for plates and eating utensils for more than a thousand years and was common in the 1600s and 1700s. There were never any enforced standards for pewter and hence they are difficult to date or identify by their marks - many have no marks at all.

This plate has a number of marks. There is a large "London" which may or may not mean it was made in London. It has a crown: it has "made in England; it has a touch mark (the pewter equivalent of a hallmark) which appears to be a unicorn head; and another touchmark that I can't identify.

Pewter was out of fashion by the late 1700s so this likely dates to that period.

8" in diameter.
