Antique Pewter

The following pewter items are all antique originals, dating from either the 18th century, or early 19th.  All are at least 150 years old.  Many times the style of pewter from this period changed little over the decades, as often the same molds were employed for many years.  We attempt to describe these pieces as accurately as possible and when possible, give our opinion as to region of manufacture and date.  All have minor scratches and a nice patina consistent with their age.

Early Townsend & Compton English Pewter Plate, c. 1784-1802.  7 7/8 inch diameter.  The plate is the very early Townsend and Compton mark with double touch marks and four hallmarks. The plate has a single reeded  rim with a shallow bowl.  The plate has two impressed marks; one has a bird over a lamb and reads, "TOWNSEND & COMPTON". The second mark has a crown and rose and reads, "MADE IN LONDON".  The four hallmarks are, first a shield, then a dagger on a flag, then a lion, and last T & C.    This mark is the earliest Townsend and Compton mark dating from 1784 to 1802.   $75.00

PEWTER PLATE, 9 inch diameter.  Partial touch marks are "HENRY", "H D", and various other "shields".  Most likely made in London.  $80.00

PEWTER PLATE, 8 1/2 inch diameter.  Touch marks are "LONDON", and a crowned-rose.  Also, the initials "SD" are stamped on the front rim.  Has some cracking in the middle.  $80.00

Vintage Pewter

SOLD  but I do have others, please inquire- Colonial Williamsburg reproduction tea pot.  8 1/2 inches tall.  Only minor handling marks, no dings or scratches. $100

Geddy Shop - Small Taper Candlesticks- Here is the rare opportunity to purchase work made in the restored James Geddy shop in Colonial Williamsburg.  These candlesticks were made in the same manner as in the 18th century, hand cast, finished, and polished.  The underside is stamped with the touch mark of Sven Burg, master smith, as well as the "I.G." Geddy shop stamp and "Handwrought".   The candlesticks measure 4 1/2 inches tall and would have been used to hold a small candle for melting sealing wax.  They have a nice mellow patina and are in excellent condition.
