Compton Dish


This dish is 15” and marked by Compton, who worked in London from 1801 to 1817. The dish is in such good condition that you can see the skimming marks on both the front and back. The reason we see so much of Townsend and Compton pewter in this country is that they were Quakers and did a lot of business with the Quakers in Philadelphia. They exported thousands of pieces of pewter each year to our country starting in the 18th Century.
