Swiss Maker’s Mark, (Geneva maker IF) French Quality Mark, 18th Century
An Intriguing Piece Awaiting Translation


Antique Pewter Charger with Wriggle Worked Rim and Engraved Decoration, 18th Century, entire view

The figures may be Germanic; soldier on the left appears to be an Austrian grenadier and the guy on the right, wearing tricorn hat and priming-flask is probably a Prussian artillerymen or infantrymen. Then again, we could hypothesize that displayed are a Spanish grenadier and a French artillery or infantryman, whereas the Spanish also wore single-breasted coats without lapels during this period and large grenadier caps of the form depicted. The eagle was used by the Hapsburgs heavily and the Prussian monarchy. The lion may be British-Hanoverian royalty. The symbolism of three rings interlocked might refer to the alliance of Austria, Germany and Britain during the Seven Years' War. Is the key a Masonic device? We have networked with respected scholars, yet; we have not reached conclusion, perhaps you can help.
This terrific item just in; we are open to discussion, please contact us if interested!

Outstanding Pewter Medical Infusion Mug by Henry & Richard Joseph, Late 18th Century A fine and clean example featuring an acanthus leaf decorated handle SOLD


Outstanding Pewter Medical Infusion Mug by Henry & Richard Joseph, Late 18th Century, entire view

Henry and Richard Joseph, London from 1785-1792, Henry was a master pewterer, in business 1736-1784; in partnership with his son, Richard in 1785…scarce, few pieces extant. A piece of camphor was held in the compartment under the pierced brass grate on the lid; the mug was filled with boiling water; a hose was fitted to the chimney on the lid. The patient inhaled air through the hose; piercings on brass grate and handle allowed air to flow into the water…and over the camphor. The combination of fresh air infused with camphor soothed the congestion of the patient’s lungs. Opium and aromatic leaves were also used in the 18th century medical devices. (Measuring 5 3/8’ tall to top of chimney; 4 5/8 to top of lid.)
