If you can't beat them...

Pewter Coffee Pot

A bit of an emergency blip.  Having had a busy morning, afternoon at the garden centre which frowns on photography and then out for a meal to celebrate Kanyl's birthday tomorrow, I was left with little time or inspiration.

While in thew loft looking for somethings for a Clickychick still life I had unearthed a couple of Pewter coffee pots which stood on my parents sideboard at home.  I had hung on to them for sentimental value.  So here is a shot of one of them.  I didn't call them a pair as they aren't identical so at some time in the future you may see the other.
This one is inscribed on the bottom.

                       V  M
                  V (very faint and possibly a crown following it)
      Broadhead &.........( I assume son but a scratch hides the word
            North Street Works

          5     Half Pints

Interestingly Sheffield is still the home of some Pewters who we used to buy from when we had the Jewellers shop.
