Antique English Pewter Platter Bowl from England circa 1820

A large antique english flat bottom pewter platter or bowl from England circa 1820.  Pewter is a mixture of tin and lead that has a characteristic muted gleam.  Older pewter such as this bowl has a mixture of metals that creates this beautiful deep gray patina.  The generous size of this piece identifies it as a serving dish that would be placed in the centre of of the table.  The trim has a handsome delineation and there is a fairly broad shallow band before the deeper section begins.  This bowl is marked with the initials "FB" stamped into the shallow band to identify the owner.  The family would have used this piece at every meal and it was kept on the dresser in the kitchen in order to be readily available.  The colour and patina are impossible to recreate on a new piece of pewter and enhance its magnetic appeal.
