Large Marked American Pewter Basin
This 12 ½” basin in marked by “LOVE” which would date it from the Philadelphia area from 1750-1800. The marks are located on the outside bottom which you would expect on an 18th Century piece. There is a small stress crack on the bottom which is hard to see. Big basins took a lot of abuse from use and this one survived it very well. You’ll be surprised that it is not priced in the thousands.
