    That’s a really nice relic EB! I have a lot of early pewter spoons but none have any design. Just the rat tails and dog nosed type. Well done

    What a great looking find, I've yet to find a complete example.
    It would be amazing is if you could get it restored, now that would make for a great display piece.

    Thanks, I bet you’ll get a complete one when you least expect it.

    I definitely want to display it but I need to find a case that can show the fancy details on the front and back sides. I’m sure I’ll find something if not I’ll just make one. Thanks again

    Don't you mean... if I dig enough holes, one day I 'might' find a complete example.

    "It's important to remember that early pewter had a very large lead content. Because lead is a poisonous substance, its daily or frequent use resulted in the chemical leaching out of the plate, spoon or tankard and quickly being absorbed into the human body. As a result, many died from pewter poisoning, especially sailors. Pewter is crafted with a much lower lead base today, so it is not anywhere near as dangerous as it was a couple of centuries ago. It is difficult to find pieces that are not damaged or restored in some way.

    Centuries ago, sterling silver was displayed in people’s homes to show off their status or wealth. People who could not afford sterling relied on pewter examples fashioned to look like silver pieces to brighten a cupboard and fool visitors, who, most often could not tell the difference between the two metals. When it comes to marks, items stamped “pewter” indicate that a piece was actually manufactured in the 20th century. Punch or touch marks include various symbols, initials and makers, and there are thousands still that remain unidentified to this day."


    Congrats again on your find my friend,
    Dave

    Because it was so soft these spoons really took a beating. I believe it was Eli Whitney that carved his own spoon mold and traveled around to farms melting down old pewter ware and recasting it for a price. Early in his career. Would love to find some of his mold
