An Export Pewter Plate by John Townsend

An Export Pewter Plate by John Townsend

Townsend worked from 1748 until his death in 1801.

He had many successful partnerships and his successors were highly successful as well. I am safe in saying that a substantial portion of his business success was due to the export market of which he enjoyed a sizeable share.

Townsend was a Quaker and traveled to America particularly Pennsylvania and must have made many lucrative connections with merchants here. You cannot look at a stack of antique pewter plates in Pennsylvania without coming across an example by Townsend or one of his associates.

This 8 3/8"plate is in near fine condition with fine "as struck" touches. The metal is of high quality as is the workmanship.

Price: $95
