At a Meeting of the Pewter Society at Cheltenham Museum on June 22nd 2017. Several of the first group of 14 (half those attending) declared this to be a good piece.

The basis of their opinion was that the oxidation or ageing over the wrigglework and parts of the plate was real, authentic and could not be so faked. If correct then Jan Gadd and Ron Homer were both – wrong.
