Antique American Pewter Basin by Wm Danforth of Middletown

Antique American Pewter Basin by Wm Danforth of Middletown

This 7 7/8” diameter American Pewter Basin was made in the Middletown, CT shop of William Danforth who was active from 1790-1820. William took over the Middletown shop after his brother, Joseph, passed away.

William’s work is represented by flatware. He likely also made hollowware and there is some belief he used his brother Joseph’s small lion die to mark those hollowware items he made.

This basin is in very good plus condition with a few small areas of etching. The touch is as struck meaning there was never any more than what currently shows.

Price: $345
