This is not comprehensive, or definitive and may only lead the reader to ask for better guidance – and some attempt to find that for the reader will be given later. Pewter plates and mugs…. (generally it is said that a tankard has a lid)…. have a variety of marks on them. For me some of these marks are works of art, some are confusing, and when I began I wondered what they all meant. (Postage stamps offer art work and interest and so even more personally do the marks on pewter.)
The Pewter Society, and a number of books, will lead you to a better understanding, perhaps. But all I want to do is enthuse you, show you what I enjoy, and lead you to where you might want to find out more for yourself.
