quite attractive Keith.          When you say no marks, are you saying there is nothing on the pewter either?

Thanks Paul, just what I was thinking,most British pewter has some sort of mark,another of my collection habits ::),I thought it worth the few pounds it cost  a little washing up liquid and an old toothbrush cleaned it up a treat ;D ;D
