As I told you in Wednesday's blog entry, I purchased, last Sunday part of a very large collection of pewter. The above items are two of the pieces I purchased.
They are this weeks MYSTERY ITEMS.
The one on the left (in some ways a very rare item indeed to have survived) is just under four and a half inches high and just under six inches across the upper rim/ brim. The one on the right is probably too easy to guess. It is just under six and a half inches high (to the top of the rather unusual barrel shaped knop. They are both (as stated) of pewter, and both English. Their purpose and date please ? As a clue the one on the left is probably slightly the earlier of the two, but they are of much the same period. Good guessing.
