Jacob Whitmore American Pewter  7-7/8" Plate, ca. 1758-1790

An excellent  marked pewter plate by Jacob Whitmore of Middletown Connecticut, ca. 1758-1790, in the  7-7/8"
size.  This size plate is shallower than his other known 8" range plate.    

The plate is in very good condition. Jacob's rose and crown touch mark (J-208) is double-struck, as is typical, on
the reverse.  Jacob's touches are rarely struck well;  most of his touches are seen only as partial touches. These
are well above-average strikes .
