Melville Newport Rhode Island Pewter Geometric Handle Porringer ca. 1780
An excellent condition triangular geometric handle porringer with the distinctive 'rib' Melville bracket. The bowl is
5-3/8" in diameter and has a terrific linen mark. Unmarked, but marked examples are known with either David
Melville's (1755-1793) rectangle initial DM touch (J-211) or the DM initial and anchor touch (J-215).
A very scarce porringer.
