Customer Question

I have a pewter and EPNS flagon which has a damaged mark that is very difficult to read. I think it is 'warranted quadruple plate' then something indecipherable which could be PLATE CO, New York and the numeral 10.
The flagon is 8inches high and holds 2.2 liters of liquid. It has decorative flowers on the body, possibly a stencil, and an or date monogram which think is I H W below the pouring spout.

Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Please send two photos -

One of the whole flagon

One of the marks on the bottom.

Also, I need to know the height.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.

If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "reply to expert" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.
