Pretty design makes this one a must-have for your collection!
Pewter is a metal alloy, traditionally between 85 and 99% tin, with the remainder consisting of copper, antimony, and lead, and has traditionally been used to make tableware and decorative items. Pewter is highly ductile, meaning that it can easily be worked, embossed, or carved, and has been in use since at least Roman times. Pewter starts out glossy and bright and over time the metal oxidizes, acquiring a nice grayish patina.
The tradition of marking high quality pewter began in the 14th century and continues today. Typical quality marks include the rose stamp, the crown stamp, and the angel stamp featuring the Arc Angel Michael with a balance and sword.
In overall very good condition. Antique and vintage items by their very nature show normal wear to finish and miscellaneous scratches, nicks, and dings due to age and use. As we define 'very good condition' relative to the stated age of the piece, we would expect to see 'character marks' consistent with that age and could include minor nicks or dings to a wooden, metal, enamel or chalkware object, minor wear to a painted surface, minor speckling on a mirror, light crazing, wear to gilding, or small manufacturing glaze skips in ceramic finish, or slight wear to a label. If ceramic/porcelain restoration has been done, it is of museum-quality so that it is hardly discernible and would be specifically mentioned in the listing. 'Very good condition' would not include chips or cracks in any glass or ceramic item, but could include very minor fleabite chips to the edges of a marble item.
This item shows normal wear consistent with age and use.

The Fine Print
Because EuroLux Antiques maintains its own website and lists on other online sites, while also operating a physical store location in Newberry, South Carolina, we reserve the right to end any listing early if it has not been purchased outright or no bids have been placed upon the item. On occasion, a piece listed on a website may no longer be available. We do our best to maintain the accuracy of our inventory records but we often have customers interested in the same item at the same time. In those cases, we defer to the customer who placed the earlier order. We apologize in advance by any inconvenience this may cause. Because of this, we encourage all of our buyers to purchase the item as quickly as possible so that your treasured find doesn't sell elsewhere to someone else. Happy browsing and thanks! Aimee & Greg Talbot at EuroLux Antiques.
