A footed bowl by Henry Joseph, London 1736-85 his marks under the base (from 1785 until his death in 1792 he worked in partnership with his son Richard). London pewterers made almost all marked examples of this form throughout the 18th century. The deep bowl has a broad raised fillet below the flared rim, and sits on a stepped and ovolo moulded hollow foot. This form of bowl is found in a range of capacities from about 15 to 30 fl oz. They have been variously described as broth bowls, and butter basins, but the likelihood is they fulfilled several kitchen and dining room needs. In very good condition, with medium-grey original surface patina. Capacity is 24.3 fl oz. 3½" tall. 5¾" rim, and 3⅜" base diameters. 335g weight. REF: C3892
