Pair of Large Antique English Pewter Chargers circa 1820

A pair of large pewter chargers from England c. 1820 each having a rolled rim with a sloped edge leading to a shallow centre.  These pieces are classic pewter serving pieces and were used for every meal where they were filled with food and placed in the centre of the table.  They would have either been on the dresser when not in use or on the mantel above the fireplace.  Their beautiful gleam added to the warmth of the interior and their durability was a prized asset.  On the reverse of one of the platters is an oval created by crossed feathers enclosing a fleur-de-lys and the initials "NBS" that most likely identify the maker.  There are also three initials "JBF" stamped as well that are most likely the owners identification.  At some point this piece became important enough to display as there is a small hole punched through the sloped edge for hanging.  These chargers bear all the signs of wear expected from their use in a busy home and have a lovely patina.  They will be as beautiful when displayed on a dresser or cabinet in a home today as when they were first made.
