rare set of six palethorp plates
i am pleased to offer this rare and possibly unique set of six plates by robert palethorp jr of philadelphia 1817 to 1822. robert palethorp was the last of the fine philadelphia makers of pewter. his wares are well cast and finished as are these 8 1/2" single reed plates. his flatware is hard to find these days, for i have never seen a set of his plates. each plate is in very good, lightly-used condition, and has well-struck eagle and name touch marks on the back.
