    Found in Plymouth ma... Can not find exact match, but similar dating 1600-1700. Possible mayflower relic? Needs some help identifying.

    Well.. Your title has me a bit confused.. pewter is an alloy of copper and tin.
    Approximately 20% copper and 80% tin.
    How did you ID. The material?
    And what makes you think it's that old?
    An identifiable mark Would likely have been on the handle.. for some reason I can't see where one was attached ..Mabey its just the photos.
    It looks like tarnished silver to me.(silverware)

    That is a different shape completely.
    It is pear shaped.
    Good luck with yours.. I would test it for silver if I were you.
    Without a mark.. its doubtful you will ever date it.
    Silver tarnished black and green.
