Pewter Porringer, Reading, Berkshire, England

Pewter porringer with a bouged bowl and a single Old English type ear. The owners initials of B over H I are struck on the top of the ear. Dating from around 1690-1720, the back of the ear bears the mark (M416) of Richard Allum I of Reading (PS174). Commonly said to have been used for holding soft foods such as broth or gruel, contemporary evidence records the use of porringers for preparing foods and medicines and also for serving sauces. It is therefore likely that they were general purpose vessels. The rim has a diameter of 12.38 cm
