A Set of Four Export Pewter Plates by Fasson & Son - SOLD
This set of four Export Pewter plates was made by John and Thomas Fasson, a father son partnership working in London from 1782-1798 and are examples of their lucrative export market.
All the plates are in fine condition with fine "as-struck" touchmarks. There are wonderful crowned owner's initials on the face of the rims. These initials are very similar to the set used by John Skinner in his shop to provide clients with their initials.
The plates measure 8" in diameter and all have beautifully hammered bouges. The face and back surfaces of the rims show beautifully turning marks and some lathe chatter.
We find it amazing that this is the third set of English Export plates we have acquired in a short time. Sets are difficult to find, in fact it has been at least six years since we had our last set of English Export pewter plates. They say things come in 3's
