This 12 1/8" Export Pewter Plate is marked Compton. This is most likely the partnership of Thomas & Townsend Compton, who worked in London from 1802-1814.
They were the Son-in-Law and Grandson of John Townsend. The family and their partnerships had probably the most substantial export market in America of all the English Pewterers.
In fine condition with some knife marks. A size that one does not encounter very often.
We are only open by appointment. tel (860) 267-2146
Please call between 9:00 AM-8:00 PM EST
