Early 19th Century Pewter Pepper
From the seventeenth century onwards, there was scarcely a household in Britain that did not possess some items of pewter: plates, bowls, tankards, spoons, candlesticks were just some of the everyday items made from pewter.
This pewter pepper pot would have been in most houses except the most humble. It would be on the table or on a kitchen shelf and would be used most days.
A few dinges to the pewter.
