Antique American Pewter Small Charger, 12", Jacob Whitmore, Middletown, CT., c. 1758 - 1790. This is an early and very attractive pewter charger with a polished patina. This charger has a single reeded rim and a turned body with a shallow bowl. The charger is a lovely example of a very early revolutionary War period marked American pewter. This plate has two impressed maker's marks, that have some wear. These are the marks used by Jacob Whitmore, who was one of the first pewterer's to work out of Middletown, CT., along with Thomas Danforth II. The two of them sometimes worked together and were known to share molds. This mark is listed in "GUIDE TO AMERICAN PEWTER", by Carl Jacobs, page 175; where it identifies these marks as #268. A 12 inch diameter pewter charger in 1957 with this mark, was valued at $100 back in 1957. I offer this charger with the opening bid the 1957 value and a Buy It Now. DIMENSIONS: The charger is 3/4" high x 12 1/8" in diameter. CONDITION: The condition is good with a hairline split on the inside rim and some minor surface wear, and dents. SHIPPING: Buyer pays actual shipping costs based upon the 4 pounds and 12 ounces weight and postal zone. Please use the shipping calculator within this listing to calculate postage within the continental United States. This includes professional packing with U. S. Mail delivery.
