Inspired by an antique original from northern Italy, this pewter plate bears an engraving of the initials “V.R.”. Indeed, pewter plates were often personalized with the initials or the crest of the family who owned them. Jugs were often placed on this type of plate, and the convex part in the center of the plate was there to prevent the pitcher from moving. Perfect for enhancing your table or decorating your home, placed above a fireplace or on a dresser. Our pewter plates are handmade and stamped with the GT brand name, which is our guarantee of both high quality alloy and an excellent finish.
