7 7/8" "Love"  philadelphia plate

I am very pleased to offer this nice 'modified smooth' rim plate made in philadelphia between 1770 and 1820.  the three touch marks on the back were used by an ANONYMOUS SUCCESSIVE line of philadelphia pewterers probably beginning with thomas byles 1738-1771.  the plate is in very good condition.  the 'london' mark may have been used to deceive colonial buyers into thinking that they were buying high quality imported pewter plates.
