11" Philadelphia Love Dish
I am pleased to offer this fine example of pewter made in the Philadelphia area of Pennsylvania circa 1790. The 'Lovebird' touchmark, the crowned 'X' quality mark and pseudo 'London' banner mark were by a successive line of pewterers from approximately 1770-1820. Buyers during this period could trust that these marks were used only on the highest quality pewter items. 'Love' pewter is always nicely cast and well finished. This 11" deep dish is a fine example and is in very good condition.
