This is an antique English hand forged solid pewter plate. The plate is 1.5 inches deep and has a diameter of 11 inches; it is engraved ‘F.H’ as ownership marks and has three manufacturer’s hallmarks on the bottom of the plate reading ‘ W.A.L 1808’. Chargers, dishes, plates and saucers were collectively known by pewterers as ‘sadware’. In Britain , huge quantities of sadware were made in the period 1650 to 1780 as households. New styles then came and went in rapid succession for the next 90 years before once again a stable style emerged which continued until the use of pewter for sadware died out in the 19th century. Owners often applied their own marks to pewter. On plates, dishes and chargers these were usually just a simple triad or pair of initials stamped on the rim. Sadware was commonly used in pubs, Inns, and households both as kitchenware and decoration; in modern times they are commonly used as Passover plates.
