Old Pewter

Excerpt from Old Pewter: Brass, Copper, and Sheffield Plate Old pewter is becoming daily of greater interest to the householder, since the fancy for using this attractive ware in country houses has become so widespread. Old plates, platters and chargers that have not seen the light for scores of years, or that have been subjected to indignities, such as covering the flour barrel or catching rain-water leaking into the garret, are now brought forth and treated with pride and consideration. "Hollow-ware" - jugs, mugs, tankards, and the like - is even more in demand, and if not wanted as ornaments for the shelves in the dining-room, may be used on the table, in appropriate proximity to "Old Blue China" and ancient mahogany, which also have been hauled forth from undeserved obscurity. Much of the pewter is marked; but in some cases the "touches," as these marks were called, have become almost undecipherable from use. Some of it was made in this country and bears the names of American makers, though much was imported and sold here that had no mark at all. To facilitate the classification of this ware, a list of Continental, English, Scotch and such American names as could be found, has been added to the book; so that in many cases if even part of the name remains, the piece can be identified.
