Pewter bowl's hallmarks 'speak' volumes
Pewter hallmarks
In the latest Ask the Experts column, Dr. Anthony J. Cavo demonstrates the great educational opportunity available through evaluations.

Pictured here are the hallmarks of a pewter bowl, the subject of an reader's inquiry and the focus of Dr. Cavo's most recent column. In responding to a reader's inquiry, Dr. Cavo provides this valuable tidbit: "Highly polished pewter can look like silver, and it wasn't uncommon for pewterers to use pseudo-hallmarks, not for the purpose of fooling the buyer, but at the buyer's request. Buyers who could not afford silver were able to fool their guests into thinking they were using silver rather than pewter."
