A pair of antique decorative pewter plates. Early 19th century.
These have a lovely scalloped edge and embossed designs
This type of plate was made for commemoration of a special anniversary or life achievement. The persons name might have been embossed with a memorable date.
This pair have embossed designs but no personalisation
One of the plates has a scratch and a little stain. Both are old and therefore show signs of wear which are to be expected.
I have seen these used as wall decor but also to hold jewellery or as a hall plate for all those bits that come out of your pockets
