Artifact of the Week. 1730 Pewter Plate, found in Cornwall.

This pewter plate dated 1730 was found behind the old King George Hotel in 1956 and donated to the Museum at that time by Mrs. B.E. Vining.  23.6 cm in diameter.

The number in the shield touch mark may be 1705.

Sadly this is all the information we have about the plate, any help would be more than welcome.

PS   – Not a year goes by that someone doesn’t bring in some 200 year plus artifact found while during spring yard work in Cornwall’s historic Square Mile.
