Silver porringer by Pete Acquisto



A sterling silver porringer by Pete Acquisto, stamped with his cursive A and STER.  The original was made by American silversmith Paul Revere, circa 1755 -1760.  A porringer is a small, handled bowl, originating in medieval Europe.  This is from an estate.  I have gently cleaned it with polish (not a chemical dip) and it has a nice light patina.

3/4 inch (1.9 cm) wide, 1/2 inch (1.3 cm) deep and 3/16 inch (0.5 cm) tall.
