Rare Antique Continental Pewter Punchbowl
I am not really a pewter dealer, but I believe this old punch bowl is a very unusual form. I think it is beautiful, well designed and finely finished. I believe it is an early 18th century style , and could very well be of the period. Collectors and pewter dealers here on will be able to determine the age from my photos, I am sure. The family had used this bowl as a centerpiece, there was a flower frog attached with clay in the bottom when I got it. The water has oxidized and scaled the interior somewhat, but the condition is otherwise excellent. This large bowl easily holds a gallon of punch.
The hallmarks are the angel Michael with sword over a demon with the initials P I S the crowned rose mark appears to also have the I S on the clear right side of the touch. I assume a "P" would be on the missing left side . These may be maker or regional marks...I am not familiar with pewter marks. Something has been scratched out as my photos show....presumably a previous owner's name or inventory.
HEIGHT 6 inches ( 15.2 cm )
